I like living in this area a lot. It is a family environment with a strong support system. If I had to do it again, I would live here over anywhere else. I think the town is a good distance from the city; not too far but still away from the hustle and bustle. In the future, I see this area becoming cleaner, safer, and bringing in more income while still providing reasonable/low cost housing options.
From what I see, there is no or low crime. I feel safe where I am located but I have heard rumors about the surrounding areas. None of the surrounding areas are crime ridden.
