Local Reviews

The most unique part about my neighborhood is that it's huge. And I have a lot of food restaurants around I like going to food restaurants with my family and friends.

There are a bunch of stores and restaurants less than a half mile from the development with sidewalk the whole way.

All the neighbors in this area have been here a long time, so they are all very familiar and friendly. All the local hang outs are laid back so it is all easygoing

The neighborhood has a garden and all services are available. We are going to the garden as we have. We have a bar that we will need to be able for drinks wine

MDDONALDS IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD HAS THE BEST FRIES EVER AND I LIKE TO GO SHOPPING WITH MY FAMILY AT TARGET

Nothing it is perfect the way it is right now it shouldn't be changed so I don't think it should change No where I live by my self
