What Local says

A fairly quiet town that is making great strides in cleaning up it's reputation as a gangland. Lots of new youth programs and projects to beautify the city. The open market every Wednesday and Friday is fantastic and generally has a little something for everyone. The nightlife and housing affordability could use some work, the former being rather lacking and the latter being ridiculous at times, although not as ridiculous as some other cities in the area.
