Don't move here ! Residents will spy on you and report every little violation. Well maybe if you like living with snobby people this will be the place for you !

Spring Arbor is perfect for me since I still work part-time so the location is ideal. It's also a good value with prices I can afford and really low taxes. I love the fitness center and swimming pool and my grandkids enjoy it when I take them over to the playground.
