Over the past 10 years, Tulare has grown exponentially in population and popularity. North Tulare is becoming more developed with mainstream businesses and attracting diverse families across the state with new housing and estate. However, the Main street and the older areas of town need more resources. This includes maintenance, security, funding. The funding will enhance and improve the living and learning experience for the resident living on the under-developed side of town. Overall, Tulare is underway to becoming a prized town to live in. With the town in its entirety to be well funded and supported, it will be coined as the "perfect town."

Tulare is a nice quiet town when it wants to be, wish there was less violence as there is. A place I would move to for retirement, its not made for young adults who want to experience life and do things in my opinion. There isn't very much opportunity. Tulare has very nice neighborhoods and very nice people, but like all towns and cities it has its flaws. The beaches and views are a drive away, so in order to get a good view, touch some water, go on a hike, you have to drive a little ways to do so. Its not so bad taking a drive every once in a while, but at the same time having those things a little closer is always nice. If your a city person, Tulare is not the place for you, its very small and quiet. If you like the small and quiet though Tulare would be a great option, right in the middle of the great California, just find a nice neighborhood to locate yourself and it would be great. Its a cheaper part of California as well so the cost of living here is not as bad as the city.
There's not a lot here. It's hot in the summer, super foggy in winter, and expect dust storms and tumble weeds, and bugs. This is an agriculture town after all. If you're looking for a slow and dusty cow town, this is it. Granted, it is nice that it's fairly quiet, you don't hear about too many wild crimes, or even hear that many sirens. On the bad side, it's quiet. Neighborhoods are fairly far from anything like shopping areas, not that you'd want your kids walking along the major streets that still don't have sidewalks anyway, despite being near schools. So you'd need to drive to get anything, since you probably don't want to ride a bike with some of these drivers and most streets don't even have a bike lane, or again, sidewalks. The schools are all fairly good quality though, we even have a number of new ones coming up and new neighborhoods next to them. It has a charm to it I suppose, I still can't wait to move though.
