There are a lot of things close by because it is the suburbs, so you never have to go far from home to get what you need. There are a lot of families in the area and that is causing a lot of development, so the atmosphere is forward moving. I think that this area will continue to grow as the families do and will become just as diverse as the rest of Baton Rouge.

In my area specifically I do not see a lot of crime. However, Baton Rouge itself is very crime heavy. Our government is not doing well due to our Governor but it will get better once he is out of office. Our schools are doing well from what i can see and the people generally care about their neighbors.
There are pockets of crime filled areas, but it is not spread out and it is usually obvious if the area is not the best. Crime in this part of town, though, is not a major concern as it is the suburbs.
