Adding to my list of things to worry about... the smaller towns are appealing, but will my little babies be unsafe in the backyard for a few minutes? Saw some pretty homes in BG backing up to a greenspace, but thinking about the critters who probably live out there...

Also, do these towns generally have DSL and good cell service?

daylight is usually safe for coyote bait, we've lost countless cats to them + bobcats, cougars, and owls.
The towns you mentioned have decent connectivity. As I previously mentioned I would get closer to the border of OR and not dink with the commute from BG, if you can be within proximity to the exit is it ok, but backroad commute can be deadly, and is tough on your car. Look for spots near transit malls if you are into public transportation.

We live near the BPA Ross complex in the center of vancouver and I have seen deer and coyotes on my street. I also have a giant Hooty owl living in our biggest fir tree. I like the coyotes and owls because they keep the cat/ratdog population down.
