The area is growing. New houses being constantly built, more street signs, more people moving in, but I could do better I feel. The area is quiet and dull. Even though you are surrounded by beautiful homes, there is nothing interesting that happens and you just have to make something happen. It's really dull. The most I can do is walk my dog around the block. This area is going to continue to grow because it suits the middle class very well.

Beautiful homes everywhere. Each home has a unique feature.
