We have lived here for more than 10 years and have seen the neighborhood change a lot. More and more young families have moved in and it feels like a safe, welcoming place to raise our children. We have connected with many lovely neighbors, love the sense of community, and love how easy it is to get around the neighborhood and connect with people.

Great parks, new construction and improvements to the main strip, plans to add bike lanes and crosswalks.
