I love that living in Oak Grove rent wise is cheaper. I would like to see it easier to like get our tags for the car and also for replacing a lost drivers license. Maybe make it easy like Tennessee possible to get it replaced online for the driver license. I am afraid of how much it will cost me to get my car tags this year I've heard nightmares with that. Other than these things I would not change anything. I come from a small town so I love it here!

In Oak Grove, the town is between two big cities, Hopkinsville and Clarksville. The town is not big so it is naturally a friendly environment. Mostly everyone knows each other and can get along. I like that Oak Grove is most of the time a safe environment and a calm place to raise a family. However, Oak Grove could use sidewalks along the road for pedestrians.
Ive been living in Oak Grove for 16 years. Oak grove is outside of Ft Campbell are base. Oak Grove is very quiet and now its growing with more houses. One thing I would like to seen change is more side walks for people to walk on. I find it very dangerous for people to walk in the middle of the street. This could also help and get more people to exercise. change I would like to see is more stuff for children to do. More activity.
