    It's a great place to live! I love how everything is close to each other making it really easy to plan outings for a family. Also there are many open spaces and parks in the area that are well maintained which is great for the spring, summer, and fall activities. I would like to see less construction in the area. The items for construction have just been left there and it seems that construction has stopped for some reason and even though we need the improved roads its causing far to much trouble with traffic.

    It is the perfect size town situated just as close to the mountains as it is to the city! Less then 15 minutes away is boulder where the night life is, then you can come home to a relaxed safe environment. Plenty to do around town and the mountain line is always in your sites. From the breweries, to the shops, to all the restaurants there is a variety of places to spend your time.
    My neighborhood is a dream come true! It is a great environment for families. The neighborhood is one big community. We have many events to bring the neighborhood together such as movie nights in the park, chili festival, parades, and more. I have grown up here and watched the neighborhood grow. It seems to always be improving and in a way that benefits families. However, the community is very inclusive. There are families of all types and sizes and the community welcomes everyone. My hope would be to go to college and come back here. Settle down and raise my own family here. I would recommend the neighborhood to anyone!
