Mountain Island Reviews
Rating 3.6 out of 5 25 reviews
This is a great area to live, the area community is peaceful and friendly. The community is diverse and the schools are STEM based which allow for exceptional learning advances for students growing up in the area. All in all this a nice area which is ideal for families.
Crime has increased, what used to be our rich, well kept areas are not safety issues. Our local government even brought in police towers that make our area look unsafe to people considering moving into the area. The police have become very evident. I am concerned for my personal neighbor hood because the lady who owns the land around us is soon to die. When she does the land behind will be sold to developers who will make apartments and lower the property value of our house.
I prefer to live in this area because it's a great location and they have really good public and private schools for the children. It's not a real busy city compared to like Washington, DC so not much traffic.
I think there is plenty of safety in this area. There are police in nearly every place you go to. They patrol the streets often and you can usually find them at many places. Most of the communities in this area have neighborhood watch teams that watch out often and report suspicious activities as well as notifying the community when there are changes about or if there is something they need to watch out for.
The housing in this area is primarily broken up into subdivisions where the houses are built in certain area with the same few housing layouts. In apartment complexes, the layout and outer appearance tend to be very similar if not the same. Since there are so many people migrating here every year, there are more places being built up in subdivision styles.There aren't many abandoned properties or different types of housing outside of the more rural areas and the cost of housing tends to be fit due to where a person is living.
The weather here is not very extreme like in other places. Usually for the fall and spring the temperatures are around 50-70 degrees. In the winter it does get cold, usually about 20-50 degrees whereas in the summer it is hot but also humid at around 60-100 degrees. We don't really get severe weather in the winter. Sometimes in the past few years there have been a few inches of snow but generally not too much. The area I reside in is pretty moderate weather wise. My wardrobe usually consists of light sweater and heavier ones for the winter. For these reasons I think the weather is great here.
I feel the options here are great because there are many places and events that take place downtown especially around the holidays. Many clubs have theme events during certain times of the year like during CIAA. There are also many bars that stay open late for entertainment as well as many performers who come here to do shows so there is definitely lots of entertainment options. That is why I think there is great entertainment here.
I think the area I live in has many job opportunities. In the city of Charlotte, the job market is constantly growing as new businesses continue to migrate to this area. There are many new jobs being added to the job market here as well as many new people moving here. I think the type of jobs available would mainly suit people who are looking for jobs in business and engineering as well as working for large corporate companies. I think this because most of the companies that come to Charlotte are concentrated in those fields and offer jobs in those fields. That is why I think Charlotte is a great place to find jobs at.
IN THE SUMMER IT IS VERY HOT AND IN THE WINTER VERY COLD. HARDLY GET ANY SNOW UNLESS THERE IS A STORM. THERE IS RARELY ANY FLOODING.
THE NEIGHBORHOOD IS WELL KEPT. THE COST OF LIVING IS AFFORDABLE WITH NICE HOUSES.

THE AREA IS A GREAT PLACE TO LIVE. IT IS VERY QUIET AND EVERYONE IS FRIENDLY.
THERE ARE A LOT OF JOBS OPEN, BUT YOU HAVE TO KNOW PEOPLE TO GET YOUR FOOT INTO THE DOOR. IT IS VERY HARD TO GET A DECENT JOB.
THE PARKS AND RECREATIONS PLACES ARE ALWAYS VERY CLEAN.
THE LOCAL BUSINESSES ARE GREAT. THERE IS NOTHING TO COMPLAIN ABOUT. EVERYONE IS ALWAYS FRIENDLY AND HAS GOOD COSTUMER SERVICE.
