Is Orangevale Still A Laid Back/safe Area?
Posted 01 September 2010 - 12:24 PM
In 1994 the complex I lived in on Main (between Greenback and Madison) still had that 80s security and friendliness to it, like neighbors looking out for each other. As a kid I even used to cut across the then-field behind the Schools Credit Union to go to the Albertsons center on occasion, or to the Ross and Burger King across the street. I'm not sure how safe it would be for a 12 year old to do that today, especially alone. I also had a maybe mile walk home from school the following year, and I don't remember any dangerous or unnerving situations at all. North Highlands (where my mom worked) was definitely another story.
Was I remembering it wrong and just wondered if the "feeling" has changed at all today?

Parts of downtown Sac, South Sac, West Sac may be a different story.

I bet those places you remember are still safe. They're just not as new. Sometimes older neighborhoods are just that, older, and not necessarily prone to more crime.

It's kinda neat that apparently Rancho (from the thread I did on that awhile back) is a bit better off too.

but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming
"Wow! What a Ride!"

from my experience its pretty much garbage, except for the big farm estates, its like the dumping ground of Folsom
