People in my area (out of town-country) have lived here mostly for as long or longer than I have. As for the actual community of Nolensville, there are many new people who have lived here for 5 years or less. They continue to build houses, and people continue to move here. I wish that it would stop now!!

Crimes do not occur here, except for small petty ones like petty theft. Those who do get stolen from do not have a major break in, usually they just forget to lock their doors (for their house or car). However, farther away from town it is very safe, yet if something happened, we can rely on the police to show up in a quick manner.

Papillion has been ranked one of the best places to live in the country multiple times. The quality of life is great. This is a great place to raise a family. After a while of living here, you get to know the people in the town and see them all around. The downside is that it is very quite. Sometimes there isn't a lot to do, and you have to venture into Omaha for the nightlife and good dining options. But, at the end of the day, I would rank Papillion the very best. I know the mayor personally, along with most of the people that live in the town, and he does his very best to ensure Papillion is headed in the right direction.
