in the Northeast. Is there crime? I have seen very little in my almost 10 years in the community.
There are almost 5000 homes in the community. Some homeowners believe that taking down the gates is a good idea. The fact is PCP is a gated community. No one can bring a vehicle into the community unless they are called in by a resident. This means rovers stay out.
If you are involved in illegal activities you would do best to avoid this community. They have done an excellent job in getting rid of non law abiding individuals. The security dept is armed and most are police officers from other areas moonlighting. When you call 911 in another community for a health issue you wait for Pocono regional to arrive. In PCP there is a certified EMT on duty 24/7.
I have clocked the arrival time of these EMTs from 8 to 17 minutes before an ambulance has arrived.
These men and women are way out of the realm of security guards, and officially they are Peace Officers. The community looks better and better everyday and once Summer comes you will not want to leave. The Winters are brutal but the roads are continuously plowed. Make sure you lock in a fixed electric rate for the Winter months and always have a back up heating source or two. It truly is a nice area. If you are a normal citizen then I would say its the place for you. The Board of Directors has gone through many changes and continues to improve. The dues could come down from the $1500 or so if you pay monthly. But honestly the place gets a bad rap and the people are really nice.
change and who ever is giving their version of a horroy story find out if they live in the community.
Lot of luck on you're decision.
