This place isn't perfect. We have some crime in the streets and the school system leaves some things to be desired. But the people are friendly and happy and the area is well located (somewhat rural while still within city limits and close to major attractions and sources of employment), so that is all I need to be happy here and satisfied enough to not worry about moving anytime soon. The police force is doing a good job and I have never been in the way of crime. The government is stable and keeps everything under control. New businesses are moving in and there is no major shortage of jobs. The natural environment is green and beautiful, like a huge forest that has only been cleared in the few places where it was necessary to build a home or public building. I think it is a fantastic place to live.

Its a lovely neighborhood for every age group. And I wouldn't change nothing in Brownfields. The schools to the park is out standing.
It is very, "My way or the Highway here". The local government doesn't really care what the citizens think. The public school system is getting worse. The school board doesn't listen to the parents, students, or teachers problems. There are a lot of new things happening here. Restaurants and stores popping up everywhere. Construction on the roads have been here for years. They're finally finishing up things. The weather is just like any other Louisiana weather. It never makes up its mind.
