This area is very quiet and safe. The people are average, but most are friendly. I would to choose to live here again because I have gotten a good education and it is a safe town to live in. This area compared to everywhere else in the country is safer, has less people, and has less things to do or go see. For the future in this area, I want more places to go to and places to see. I also want it to grow with more friendlier people and still maintain the same amount of safety it offers.

Like any other area you live in your concern for the safety of your family, overall things are pretty quiet in this small town occasionally something would come up, but it would bring us together to help prevent it from happening again.
The atmosphere of north Newton is great, sure theirs not busy or big like other big cities. But we are a close community and the future for this area is bright and has a good one ahead of it. When I grow up I would love to live here or someplace similar in size.
