It is one the greatest place, I have lived. It is clean; the sidewalks and multitude of trails are free of obstacles and it is pedestrian friendly. The landscaping the city does is well watered and changed for the seasons. The lighting on the streets is good. The school system is superb. My grandchildren have and had great success here.
