I love the friendly atmosphere and the physical surroundings, the mountains are beautiful! My neighborhood is very friendly and welcoming, and people are always looking out for each other. We have a great community!
The city is very well maintained, new buildings are popping up all the time. Little to no criminal activity, and developing community with a diverse group of people from all ethnic backgrounds and ages. Great place!
