It is a nice community. I feel it is a safe area that is close enough ,to everything (stores, downtown, highways, parks, hiking areas, etc.) without being too close.
I like the people, everyone is very friendly. There is easy access to public transportation nearby. Lots of nearby business that are a 5 min drive away and very close to columbia mall.
It is a safe and friendly place with good people. There are lots of things to do and lots of different places to shop.
I would like there to be restrictions on loud yard equipment during earlier morning hours. Nothing else.
More lighting on roads at night. Also I would like to see a open dog park nearby for people in the community to take their dogs.
The education system in the schools could be much better with tougher standards. More sidewalks and walking paths needed.
