Ive ben here all my life.... and change is inevitable.
However if you want to see urban sprawl its here. We used to be decent clean appealing, now were just over run with colege kids and the filth that ppl looking for a smaller town have brought. Crime is up, more violent by eah passing year. Theres also nothing to do here anymore, everything seems to be so cookie cutter from the subdivisions to the restraunts and stores. Now looking for some place with manners and the slower life to raise our kids.

Could not have said that better myself. I have been here for a few years and it went from a nice city to little Chicago. We are getting out next year and it isn't soon enough. The friendliness of most of the people is a facade too, not very sincere. I would really think before moving here.
