Hello Deadeskimoandemu, while it's difficult to qualify safe, I do know several people who have lived in the area for long periods without incident. Check out http:// http://www.movoto.com
for some area statistics on demographics, population, crime, and other area stats. You can also have your agent do a neighborhood profile for you. If you don't have an agent currently and wish to be represented by your own agent, you must secure one prior to visiting the new home development.
Hope this helps.
