negatives:
The weather here goes from one extreme to the other, wind and horrible ice storms. Extreme heat.
louisville was not prepared to grow so fast. So we have small roads, and everything else, so look forward to HORRIBLE traffic.
The crime is auful. We are number one for child abuse related deaths, child abuse, number four worst to find a job, and dating scene is horrendous. Many child abductions.
Our public school system is TERRIBLE. one of the worst.
unless you like gang activity, and teachers sleeping with students, in which case, itll be a great fit for ya. =/ Terrible drivers. I don't let my kids play outside unless its out back for a few.
lots more scary crimes, and murders. many shootings lately..
we have a contract with The First 48.
=/

positives and facts
We have a LOT to do. we have many parks. To go run, play with the kids, etc.
LOTS of museums. Good zoo
Excellent private schools.
many undergound communities to meet people and share common ideas or beliefs.
large catholic community
large number of privately owned businesses.
Small businesses are huge here, and there is a lot of support for them.

The area has a nice mix of residential developments and farmland. Not much to speak of on the commercial front, but to many that's not a bad thing.

If a semi country life style, land and home prices that are low relative to surrrounding areas, and good people interest you then you owe it to your self to take a look. Another tidbit for you. The county has a relatively large population of ex-buckeyes, many that have migrate south because of Ford.

I am an area Real Estate agent and born and raised in the county. I would be more that happy to give you a quick tour if you are interested.

Cordially

If drive-time fits, southern Indiana or Oldham County will offer you best education opportunities.
thank you for your help, his job is in the area of s. hurstboure pkwy. and taylorsville rd., does that help?

While I certainly could recommend Spencer County, I won't because you expressed a need for better quality schools. I am certain with the new gains Spencer has made, the better educated parents will certainly improve the Spencer County schools. (Yes, folks, the teachers of JCPS are outstanding) it's the huge number of irresponsible/uncapable parents that blow JCPS's school ratings into lala land.

The distance from Spencer County to S. Hurstbourne/Taylorsville is appealling, but we live in Briar Hill near Crestwood. My wife works very close to S. Hurstbourne/Taylorsville and she has never had a harsh issue about the drive.
