This is my hometown. I love living here! The community is great. I would change the business. There isn't much stores or places to shop for utilities.

Tornillo is located within a 30 - 40 minute drive to the nearest metropolitan area. It has a beautiful view of the mountians and a green scenery, the air is fresh and clean, and the town is mostly quiet.
I really liked that everyone in tornillo basically knows each other. What I like to see change, would be for there to be more job opportunities and more stores.
