I have lived in this area my whole life. I know my next door neighbors by name as well as those many streets down. The events held like the annual Fourth of July parade and the Easter egg hunt are two of the neighborhood's biggest traditions. I am so proud to say that walking down the street, I do not fear my safety, but feel safe because I could go up to almost anyone's door, and know that I will be welcomed in and be known by name. The neighborhood was built in the fifties and sixties, and now many young families are moving in, making the neighborhood full of potential. Over the years, streets and curb appeal have improved, as well as our park. If I could come back to this neighborhood to live there when I am older, I would do so in a heartbeat.

Lately, more extreme weather but public services respond, at least on major roads. There are warning systems and effort to get community involved in emergency management. There is public awareness campaigns for getting individuals prepared for emergency events. The weather generally does not disrupt anything although ice storms and heavy snow can cause delays and closures something but it is not the norm...although again, nothing is the norm these days!
My parents moved to this neighborhood since before I was born, and there has never been a problem regarding crime and safety. I have seen police occasionally drive around the neighborhood, but because of the people who live in and around the neighborhood, there is not as high of a demand of police watch as there would in other neighborhoods.
