It’s a place where people know each other and care about one another. People living side by side, having backyard barbeques, sitting on the front porch, attending church, bringing their kids to school. It’s a place where people are willing to work together and invest their time, money and energy. Essentially, it is a place where people would really like to live and work and raise a family.
