The weather has gotten worse and the road quality varies by wealth of neighborhood (ussually poorer neighborhoods are neglected). The city does not cater to pedestrians or bike riders and public transportation is barely adequate, so I would say it is a car city. However there is an abundance of jobs. There are planty of recreational activites for any interest, from arts and culture to sports and to some extent outdoor activities.
I can't say I love it here, but I plan on staying at least a few more years. The weather is terrible. HOT and HUMID! If you are going into oil/gas, energy,or any general corporate positions, and you just want a paycheck, jobs are good. Companies that go the extra mile for their employees or community; however, are few. Public transportation is a joke. Environmentally friendly is not a term that would describe this area. While some progress is slowly happening in these areas, there is still long way to go compared to many other major cities. Living here is no longer as economical as it has been in the past. I lived alone for many years renting apartments. Now I rent a room in a friend's house. Rent in local apartments has gone up by $100-300 or more in the past couple years. New midrises take over long standing older complexes and they are displacing seniors and less wealthy people. With the job market being strong, lots of people are moving here. Good for companies; bad for locals. More traffic, higher rent, and lack of proper public transportation don't help. If I wasn't going back to school this fall, I would definitely be looking to other cities.
