I like that the neighborhood I live in is fairly clean and close to a lot of things to do. That being said, the construction on the roads is terrible and so are the condition of the roads. I moved here August of last year and the construction seems to be no closer to be completed as it was a year ago. Another problem I have encountered is that car alarms are going off constantly and it isn't due to people breaking in. It's simply the owners getting into their cars. It's almost as if they didn't realize that they are living in close proximity to people who are trying to sleep at 11:00 at night.

Thriving and growing Town Hall district includes a new brewery, coffee shop, and niche markets for antiques / furnishings, pet needs, yoga, and more. An active town council engages the public in important conversations about growth and community, and sponsors monthly summer events that bring live music, fun events, and great food to Westwood.
My experience in West wood has been good. I will always remember where I came from years from now and the people who helped my become who I am. In the small community I live in I like the peaceful neighbors that I have and the togetherness of the people I live with. What I would like to see changed in West wood as a a whole is a safer environment. The housing and buildings are out of date and unkempt. I think this community needs change in great ways. Once we change West wood I think kids will be given a better opportunity to thrive in this world.
