My husband is taking a job in sales where his market would be Portland/Vancouver/Olympia. The office would be in Longview where he would need to go in at the most once a week.

We have two children so good schools and low crime are big factors for us.

We would like to find a town in southwest Washington that has the feel of Snohomish, Edmonds, Mount Vernon, etc. Small towns with character, charming downtowns etc. But they can't be too remote because he'll need to access the freeway pretty easily for work.

We liked Camas, but the mill really put us off. Is there anywhere else like what I mentioned?

Thank you!

Check out Ridgefield and see what you think. It's north of Vancouver and near the river with a direct shot to I-5.

The mill in Camas has very little impact on the area. IT has really been monitered and changed over the last 10 years. Camas downtown is quaint and booteekee. Cute.
Email me if you want more questions answered, I live in that area.
UPscale homes etc

Try looking at the Battle Ground area. Good school system, low crime, and its an up and coming area to live. They are in the process of constructing a ramp to I-5 that will be a direct route to Battle Ground now, so the travel time to Longview would be only a little more than Ridgefield. Since you have children, the parks in the area are nice also. Very friendly atmosphere. I've never regretted moving there.
