Excellent community of people who looks out for one another! Everything is such close proximity, which is amazing because no one likes hours traveling to and from the store.

There is a lot of space and everything like shops and grocery stores are relatively close buy. The schools are pretty decent it depends on the teachers you get. Besides that, everyone is generally very polite and nice.
I would like to see more popular businesses and eateries. There are many old buildings and facilities in Semmes that I feel should be replaced with newer ones. The school system should include a private education institution, that way students in the area have an option of attending a public or private school. I enjoy the fact that the mobile public library is located in Semmes.
