Great neighborhood, unfortunately the village is out of money to support the community. Most people take care of their homes and maintain the up keep and keep them clean. The village offers many programs, unfortunately other towns can sign up and classes are limited for camps and youth programs

Beautiful houses and lovely greenery. Close community with great local events. The zoo is right around everyone's corner, and there are a variety of schools to choose from.
I love my town, I work as a camp counselor during the summer. My boss is the parks and rec director and she loves her job. The parks and rec center does a good job connecting to the community and works hard to make everyone happy.
