    The environment and area is one that many people would enjoy to raise their kids in. The educational system is one of the best in the area. The crime rate is very low and there are plenty of activities such as parks, fishing, and recreational buildings. Businesses are gradually growing and new developments are being built.

    There is very little to no crime that goes on. If so, it is a minor act of violence such as someone stealing a sign out of a yard. The police are always around and are very responsive.

    The food industry is about average here. Although I do enjoy local, family owned, restaurants.
