The community is pet friendly and family friendly but not idea for raising up kids. As they will be introduce to drugs and sex. Most kids especially boys don't like going to school in the community and at a certain age, most take up to drinking alcohol.
The local businesses in the area are unprofessional. The grocery stores are always filty, the stores never restock food occasionally and the employes aren't that friendly. The fast food restarunt businesses hire teenagers with little pay with little to no experience with customer service. The food sometime is cold when you have been waiting over 20 minutes. They are unorganized and rude. There are little to none variety of stores to choose from.
