Strengths/Weakness’

People stated that Summit has a lot of good, friendly people in the community that are willing to help each other.  Although they thought it was always the same people doing the helping.  It was expressed also how it was nice to see young people involved in community events and they felt it was a very safe place to live and felt comfortable allowing their children to play and leaving items outside without fear of it being stolen or vandalized.  Gossip and some negativity was brought up too but thought that was not a big issue.  Almost everyone thought Summit needs to offer more for its young people encourage young families to move to Summit.  Housing of course becomes an issue, lack of business opportunities too.  Low taxes are a benefit along with our good school system.  Family oriented community too.
