Local Reviews

I like some of my neighbors. I generally can do what I want without problems. Easy to get to places.

Friendly neighbors who mostly try not to be jerks. Neighborhood is mostly well maintained and friendly.

We have lived here 30 years and so have all of our neighbors. We have raised our families and grown old together. We share plowing snow and mowing grass when someone needs help. We have regular BBQ's in the summer. Everyone knows each other

Everyone keeps them to their self unless there is danger. There's always a near store for me to purchase food and stuff. I like to hang out with my friends and family by a nearby park.

close walking distance to a laundry mat, dollar store and fast food restaurant. nice big yards in most of the neighbors yards, including mine. Lots of trees.

What I like about my neighborhood is I have family and a lot of friends and a sweet bike racing path
