It could be any number of retail establisments with their loading docks and big rigs spewing diesel right across your fence line. Or worse yet, an apartment complex.

A church would be the absolute best choice. Only used a couple of times a week, and if a mormon church with their structure of building new wards when their congregations expand, you won't have a mega church bursting at the seams and the potential neighborhood problems described by the poster above in the Park Cities.
Bingo. Talk about a great neighbor. The only thing I would be worried about is what type of fence will get put up. Depending on how they landscape, you may end up with an acre of grass backing up to your place screened by a steel rod fence - which would be even better.

This is a good deal.

LOL. The church is on the other side of block with its own road access.

And just about every neighborhood has trash pickup, landscapers mowing lawns at all hours, and day cares in homes.

*shrug* I wouldn't buy a house next to a house of worship. If it doesn't bother you, so be it.
