Way too populated. I left because they’re cutting down beautiful trees to put up houses and stores everywhere and anywhere they can. It’s just changing and growing way too much.

Great little town that just keeps growing - Hopefully not too fast. There are some neat local shops to check out. Fun fact: back in the day it use to be called Hametown.
