I have lived in tacoma my whole life. I know what areas are nice and which ones arent. This community is one of better! I lived here 2 yearsa ago and decided to move back in 6 months ago, and had a great move in experience btoh times. I did have move out charges, but it was because my cat did a little damage to the carpet. Since moving back in I left garbage at my front door a couple times, but the manager was really respectful about the matter and I was asked to follow the rules. Was my fault and I appreciate that they care. I never see garbage on the ground. I think that sometimes people just dont want to take responsibility for their behavior or damages. I did take responsibility! You should give this place some consideration. It really is a nice community!
