I asked a question in this forum a few weeks ago about commute times, but want to make sure I did not make the same mistake twice about moving into the wrong neighborhoods. I lived in Fairbanks for a very short time while stationed at Fort Wainwright, but did not do much research on neighborhoods because I was relocating from Germany and ended up on 21st Ave in South Cushman area. The first weekend there 3 people were shot 200 yds from my front door so I decided to find somewhere else shortly afterward. I would like to avoid this type of experience again by avoiding those types of neighborhoods in my next move. Does anyone have any locations that they would try to avoid when looking for a house for a family with 2 small children.
