The community is pet friendly, most of the neighbors in this area have pets. Some of them don't keep their animals inside which means they tend to escape quite a bit. When I was very little the community had a more welcoming sense to it and held more event, like 4th of July was a community wide event now it is down to a family or so. Some people tend to stay here quite a long time while others tend to come and go.
The area is a nice place to live, the amount of local businesses and restaurants is quite reassuring. This area compared to other locations in the country seem a medium sized town with a mixture of income households. This area is really a melting pot, which adds to the diversity of the inhabitants.
