Beautiful location, tucked away surrounding some busy suburban areas. Has moments of heavy traffic on main roads but otherwise fairly quiet. Now that we have our own police and fire station, response time is better. New town hall is being built. Fairly good location with minimum 10 minute drive to nearest grocery store and town center. Plentiful options for public schooling, all great options. Cost and quality of life is high.

The housing in this area is fantastic! However it's very expensive and not everyone can afford it.
I don't really talk or communicate with anyone in this area. However everyone is very respectful and will help if needed.
