Buechel area is pretty dense and diverse. Just about every fast food restaurant. A variety of early childhood schools. Library, community center and a few gyms. Large shopping center. Within minutes of the highlands and nightlife. Would choose this area over agai, plan on buying a home.

Crime and Safety are of no concern police are pretty active with area specific squad cars that are very visible. The streets could be better, really bad potholes after snow and ice.
