A lot of people really like them as places to raise a family that are more affordable and have a small town feel.

Anyone who has lived here for any length of time do not consider them Cos, but to anyone considering a move here, they probably don't know the differences.

crime stats show 40% of the crime in four zip codes of the over two dozen in the area. Those four areas are pretty contained within the city, but even within them are some very nice neighborhoods and some very new developments as well.
