Local Reviews

Convenient to grocery stores, shopping and restaurants . A lot to choose from. I like going to the movies with my grandchildren

The residents postal mail is delivered to a secure building with access with a key. It also is pet friendly with adequate grass areas and it has patio space and outdoor storage space

I can't think of anything I really like. It's a run down drug infested place. No one wants to live here

i live in a rural area with older people and homes. Farms are near me so it's not to bad. It takes fove to ten minutes to go to a McDonald's or gas station..

It's quiet. It's undisturbed. Close to restaurants and grocery store stores and Walmart and anything you may want or need.

My neighborhood is on top of a hill and has good water drainage. I don't really go out a lot with family and friends because I prefer to stay indoors.
