the area on near 227 montana has really improved over the years. I used to pick up my children at their designated bus stop at the elementary school on Capitol. The city did a huge improvement to the nearby park as well.
When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors.
