Scott is a very safe, family friendly town. It's homey, everyone is friends with their neighbors. Everything you need is right there when you need it.
I like the town I live in, because the environment I live in is peaceful and quiet. The town i reside in is adamant with rules and laws, and a result we have a pleasant community.
