I mostly stay to myself but I believe that it would be better if people joined together to make a better community. The community is very pet friendly.I think people are more friendly to animals than they are to each other.

Some of the abandon houses have been torn down, but others are still there but should be torn down. the cost of\

utilities should be lower because there are many low income families that can't afford to pay their bill.
The streets could use more lighting. The community could use more night patrol. there is no sidewalk on our street and there really should be.. The neighbourhood is pretty good about not having non running cars around.
