    The police ride around our neighborhood on a regular basis. Crime rate is low in our area. Our neighborhood is safe. Everyone watches out for each other.

    There are grocery stores and a post office nearby. The mall is a few minutes away. Our area is easily accessible to the highway.

    Great place to raise a family. Needs to provide more job opportunity to attract a younger demographic.
