Safe! (notes on house pets) - 4/4/2010
Having spent 25 years in Erie, PA, I feel Evergreen is a very safe and friendly place. You feel that you can go anywhere at anytime and you are ok, and should anything happen, your neighbors will help you.
Only real safety issue is wildlife - as some mt lions have been known to kill people's (large!)dogs - but almost exclusively only at night. Coyotes will snap up your cats too. I live in an area where eagles and hawks eye my cats even during the day, so cats are now exclusively indoors. Depends where you are in the mts. I lived one town over where my cats were safe outdoors (they all lived) for 4 years, although they always came before dark.[read more...]

Moving from Dallas - 7/14/2007
Can anyone give me any information about the Evergreen area? We are a family of 4 (5 and 7 year old boys) and are looking for a good place to raise our kids. We live in Dallas currently and are fed up with the smog, traffic, and people. The public schools here are hit and miss and spend more time trying to pass state mandated tests than working on education. We know housing prices are higher in Evergreen but are more concerned about the "feel" of the community. Is the population generally friendly? Is starting a business there difficult if you are an outsider? How many people in the Evergreen area are acutally from Colorado?
Any and all help is greatly appreciated.[read more...]
