It has been 3 years since there were any threads about the Longview/Kelso area, so I thought I would see if the negative picture from 2017 has improved any in the last 3 years.

Any updated views about the area would be greatly appreciated (good or bad)...

Not from what I can see.

There are some Longview teams in my daughter's rec soccer league so we are up there for games a couple of times a season twice a year and it looks utterly unchanged.

You see infrequent articles about Portlanders moving up there to find cheaper housing that they can't afford anymore in the Portland metro. But that is a pretty long commute. It is reasonable if you are driving back to somewhere in north Vancouver like the Salmon Creek area for work. But not all the way into Portland. I expect Woodland to gentrify before Longview as it is closer and prettier.

I do know that my wife's employer (big medical clinic chain) has a hard time keeping people in Longview, even when they offer bonuses for living there.

Longview will perpetually be the same / similar. (don't wait it out)

Generations of 'like mind / behavior' and excuses.

Close by, I prefer Carrolls and Kalama.

There are still plenty of desirable spots within or near Longview and Kelso.

What a pity!

Thanks for the updated information. Guess we will be looking elsewhere along the 5 corridor.

Many areas will not be welcoming to that!
