    Although i love that my town is small and conservative, there is a lot of room for issues. As stated in the survey previously, the value of every house around me is decreasing significantly and the crime rate is increasing as well. I believe that the crime issue is only increasing because i hear more and more stories everyday from friends and family about my town, and how people they know got arrested. Taxes have only been increasing since i have move there, and not decreasing at all. Aside from the slight crime issue, i love my town. It is a small village that is composed of many different shops to visit, and everybody is extremely friendly. However, if i could choose to live somewhere else i would choose to live in a place like Florida where the crime rate is low, and the taxes are cheaper.

    When i walk around my town i do not feel unsafe. However, i do know that there is crime that occurs within my town. A comforting thing to realize for me is that there are always police patrolling the town at all hours of the day.

    I'm glad I grew up here and I would definitely choose to live here again. The people are so friendly and it's a quiet, laid back town with tons of things to do outdoors.
