The selected Charlotte area is one I have grown up in, overall an amazing experience due to my environment. It has it's lower class appeared areas right near nicer homes and businesses. My area however could use a lot of improvements to compare to other Charlotte communities. With over a million people Charlotte is still expanding and I see little by little around me. Things such as new roads and the renovating of older modeled establishments. I would no doubt further a future in this area by the rate of its current growth.

The overall area is very peaceful and quiet. I have not heard or witnessed anything alarming that would make me want to move immediately. The children in the neighborhood seem to get along pretty well and seem respectful, which is something that I see declining in other parts of the world today.
I feel that my family and others are safe in this neighborhood. I have not heard of any crimes being reported by neighbors. We had a personal incident where someone hit my husband's work truck over in the night and did not inform us of this and kept going. We do have officers that stay in the neighborhood and that leaves us with some sense of safety.
