queen creek has been split into san tan valley also, but they're pretty much the same. traffic was bad but has only gotten worse since they are building a new subdivision on every open plot of land, u can now COUNT ON an accident or 2 daily at the ocotillo/ironwood or ironwood/combs intersections, oh and lets not forget the addition of the american leadership acadamy which has reduced a 50 mph zone to 25 mph, and again TOTALLY not enough lanes for all the influx. Be prepared, when u try to sleep at night to hear (1) your neighbors dogs who never shut up (2) police sirens starting at around 11pm nightly. The more I started to research online the more I saw just how many (bad) crimes are going on in qc it was shocking! Neighborly spirit? how about living in the same place 4 years & not knowing ANY neighbors? its HOT so nobody comes outside, or u have 6' brick prison walls between u and your neighbors OR the rental houses in your hood switch tenants every 6 months. NIGHTLIFE: hahahaha. PARKING: never b4 have i lived somewhere where i get harassed for parking in front of my own house?! SAFE & SOUND: NO! read articles online, murder, kidnapping.. way too much for how small a town this is! PESTS: YES, MANY, DEADLY! scorpions, black widows, both common to see! not to mention all the gnat, white flies, fruit flies, regular flies!! PUBLIC TRANSPORT: none. And just the stupidity of who's running the show out here, I mean, they've torn up the major road (Hunt hwy) so whats the next logical thing to do? Tear up the alternate route (Bella vista) not to mention they also have ocotillo torn up all round walmart area, all this at the SAME TIME?! Theres no common sense! The schools are very below average & always begging for money & supplies, theres no good pizza except (expensive) rosatti's, most everything closes early, chase bank is horrible. And if your moving from anywhere with green... be prepared to see nothing by dry, brown, withered stuff. And lets not forget the great roads! speed bumps or dips at EVERY intersection, so, just in case your not looking and are driving at a normal speed of like 30 mph u pretty much destroy your front end. There's just a general unfriendliness here, Ive lived/visited quite a few places, nothing as racist, judgemental as this place, if your a white male christian who likes to ride things in the sand & drink beer in your open garage then this is probably heaven for you! As a white male, non religious, I CANNOT STAND this place, never have I had so many religo's come to my door for jesus or whoever, oh and lets not forget all the other solicitors who wanna test your water or fix your windshields or give u a home alarm, I mean, as gun happy a state as AZ is I would think you'd leave people alone, but NEVER have I been bothered so much by door to door salespeople! i cannot wait to move outta here in 3 months!!! THE ONLY reason I marked a 1 instead of ZERO on the "rate local amenities" is because it wouldn't let me do zero!
