The City, as it is currently developed, has a broad range of housing types and styles and prices; a range of shopping, professional and commercial services; and light industrial areas. The City can best be described as a "bedroom community" in that the labor force is larger than the job market within the city and most of the Citys residents are employed elsewhere within the region.
