The Difference Between a “Nice Neighborhood” and a Great Community
A nice neighborhood is one in which the residents tend their lawns and maintain their homes. A great community, however, is one in which residents invest time and energy beyond their own homes. As the photos below show, ONSL is a great community of residents who put in a great deal of time, effort, and care throughout the neighborhood.
