People tend to live in my community for a very good time . We've had our casual move ins and out but for the most part out community is very subtle. It's also quite peacefully regardless of the business street.

Most of the houses have shot gun style to them. Which means no privacy whatsoever. But rent is affordable and most homes are occupied.
It's has very very little diversity but the people are great and friendly. They make you feel welcomed and cared for.
