Wildwood Reviews

For the most part, people in my area are friendly, at least mildly organized, and not rowdy. However, there is a problem with lighting. Usually on a typical neighborhood or not well known place, there is only one street light per street.

In general, this particular area is doing very well, especially due to recent stores and intersections being constructed.
The area is well maintained, but more public transportation is necessary.
