It's one of the safest cities in America. The streets and public places are well maintained by the local government.
The homes were built in the 1970's and many are in need of update or repair. There are hardly any vacant homes in the neighboorhood as the city as a whole is a highly desirable place to live. The average cost of the homes in the area are 700,000.
