    I love this area. I moved here from Spokane area and it is amazing compared to there. People are generally friendlier here, the scenery is way better, and you can express yourself freely. The area is becoming more environmentally friendly, which I appreciate.

    It is a really nice small city. Everything is within a walking distance of all the main stores and restaurants. All local businesses are fantastic. I would like the snow removal to be improved as well as the trash pickup.

    There hasn't been any natural disasters for many years. The winter gets a little cold and snowy but nothing like the east coast!
