Love this area of Charlotte. Infrastructure is behind with all of the new development in the area though. Plenty of shopping and parks. Strong sense of community.

I prefer living in small cities, but, in this area of Charlotte, you don't feel like you live in a huge city. I have my little pocket where I live, do my shopping, hang out with friends, etc. It seems like it's constantly expanding, which can be bad if you don't like construction. It can cause heavy traffic at times. Once it's done, though, we have new shopping areas and new stores. I've recently noticed that even small issues like potholes have been fixed pretty quickly. If I had the choice, I would move here again. Compared to where I used to live in Michigan, it's much more lively and clean. I see this place continuing to expand and the school systems getting better.
There are a lot of events that go on throughout the year. My specific subdivision has a strong sense of togetherness. There are a few apps and websites that are used to keep everyone in touch. People can post anything from garage sales to suspicious vehicles in our subdivision. All my neighbors are friendly and open to new neighbors that come in. They're very accepting and kind. We trust them to get our mail and watch our house while we are on vacations. The kids in this area have grown up together and are very close.
