West Highland Reviews

3
I have had my car opened at night, and possessions stolen a few months ago. I called the police to make a claim, and because of the items that had been stolen, it didn't pose as much of a concern to the police force. My items that were stolen, were a couple skateboards and a backpack filled with my business' USB drive and some other paper work. It was unfortunate, however I am able to move on.

It seems as though other crime incidents have posed as greater threats, and the officers have been successful at catching offenders and solving cases in quick, timely manners.

The neighborhood has made many drastic improvements over the last 4 years, since I moved in. There are so many fun, upbeat places to eat, drink and spend time with friends and family. There is a great balance between night life and quiet family feel. I would like to see improvements in the road quality and walk ways.
The Highlands is a great, upbeat part of the City of Denver. There are successful people in every direction of this neighborhood. Local restaurants and small businesses have kept the area alive with local foods and living products/services. The cost of living here is fairly upper-class but is reasonable.
