Depending on what side of town you are on, you generally feel safe. Of course, it is a city so most are like that. Business corporations are starting to appear but it may not be for the better considering they are putting local businesses out of business.

For a city of 40,000 plus the surrounding areas, there should be more options on stores, restaurants.
