Local Reviews

Good communication with area business and church. Family freindly.. Good place to raise famil. Farmers Market on weekends.y

The hospital is close to me. There are a few stores up the street. It's close to the major highways That's it for me this is not a good place to live

Living in the country. I have the best neighbors who help on another in times of need. We live close enough to stores for shopping and far enough out of town to make it nice :).

I think I might move to Los Angeles in the future. But I can't afford it now. There are better working and living conditions for me

This is a college town. They seem to have everything to a coma date them. They forget we have families here all year round. This neighborhood needs street lights and side walks. And longer bus routes

In great area surrounded by schools restaurants. Lots of people out during activities. Very nice scenery.
