I really like the town. It's small and everything is close together. Right by the interstate so it is very convenient. Nobody knows how to work the roundabouts while driving though, so that is a struggle.

I grew up here. It's odd seeing it grow so much. I enjoy the new business growth. However, I recommend quick traffic reconfiguring, extra lanes, visible speed signs, bigger roundabouts and better roads.
Great schools, people, and schools. The dump leaves much to be desired with smell. The traffic is terrible. It's a great place for a family and kids
