I wouldn't trade where I grew up for anything. There are an incredible amount of resources, food, community events, and easy access to the city. It is very safe and encouraging and there is always something to get involved in.

It is extremely rare to hear of crime or even violence in the area. The police react quickly and reliably.

As far as I know, there are no major safety concerns in my area. I cannot think of a time when an act of violence was committed against a resident, other than the potential of unreported domestic abuse.
