Are you thinking about relocating to a less hectic environment? Are you tired of traffic and noise? Concrete may be the perfect fit for you, especially if you can appreciate:
- Spending time with family and friends
- Knowing neighbors better
- Getting to know people in multiple contexts (for instance, the man who works at the hardware store may also be your daughter’s volleyball coach)
- Having more time for community life or simply becoming a part of the community
- Feeling that you – one person – can make a difference
