I love the neighborhood I live in and would love to stay, unfortunately we have to move due to job relocation, I have lived in this neighborhood for 17 years. The neighborhood has an HOA, mainly for road maintainance. Snow and debris removal happens fairly fast as needed so do not expect to miss any work due to weather conditions. We have an annual Yard Sale and Picnic for meeting new neighbors or just having fun with old ones. There is very. Low traffic so you can feel comfortable about letting children play outside. neighbors are friendly and take care of each other.
