    I like living in this rural area, however there are so many new houses going up and too many new retail establishments too. It seems like they are always cutting down more trees and putting something else up. Right now they are widening the road and making some sort of roundabout in on Ray Road, which I think is a big waste of time and money.

    I've lived here my whole life so I'm used to the same things. It's rather peaceful and much plant life. The one thing that has happened in the recent years is the development of businesses and more housing has increased b/c of the military community moving into the area. Not saying this as a bad thing; it livens the area and offers more activities.

    The area is fine for the common working citizen but for teens and people younger it may seem slow and just not up to date enough. There is new places popping up just not fast enough for some people. Lately there seems to be alot more work happening in this area so it looks like there will be more to offer in the coming year. So it does have potential.
