This community has a family atmosphere that extends past neighborhoods and schools and into the workplace throughout the community. The inviting atmosphere within businesses extends to each store within the community as it is just as important to community members as prices and quality of goods. This sense of family that surrounds people makes the area the ideal place to live and raise children, I would be willing to live here for my life.

The sense that something bad would happen to someone is very low. The police presence is very prevalent within neighborhoods but the lighting within large parking lots is not ideal as several lights are prone to going out. This increases the threat of rape and violence in the community and also pulls away traffic from those stores that may have bad lighting as it is threatening to customers. However within neighborhoods there seems to be little to no threat of danger as the police keep a powerful image in the community with a constant and reliable presence.
The opportunities to improve personal health and wellness are abundant, but whether those opportunities are taken is up to the personal decisions of the public.
