Hi everyone! My dh, ds, and I are relocating to Oregon so dh can start school at Western Culinary Institute. We like Mcminnville so far but I've got a few questions. First, I've read on some of the city data posts that crime is becoming an issue. Others say it's nothing. Any thoughts? Second, is it realistic to think that dh can travel into Portland for classes? Is public transportation an option? We were hoping to find a spot that has its own vibe vs. a suburb of Portland. We like the idea of being in close proximity to the city but really aren't city types. We liked Mcminnville b/c of the buy local, strong community, small city we've read about. I've read all the related posts, but hope some of you would share your thoughts?? Thank you!!
