Florence is a very congested city. Traffic gets pretty bad because of all the schools so close by. I think school districting could be better, the Florence area tends to keep "rich" families seperate from poorer areas as far as grade schools go; I think this prevents young kids from experiencing diversity and becoming more accepting of others. Crime isn't bad in this area at all.
