As years go by, the drug scene made in this area get worse. Police action is some times taken, but not always effective. If so, things are calm for 6 months to a year and start right back over again. I have being living in this same apartment for a little over 10 years and i would not chose to live here again. Now, compared to every other area in the country i would not say it is THAT bad but i am not comfortable. The future of this area will continue to get worse, unless the right law enforcement actions are taken.

This area basically has it all that is necessary: Good schools, big parks with a lot of green spaces, shopping malls and shopping centers, a great variety of restaurants, two major cities close, and overall is safe and quiet. The future is optimistic for this zone, it might not grow fast but it will keep its citizens with steady jobs.
