I'm thinking @ moving to the CC/Killeen area. Do you like living there? Can you tell me what areas to avoid (I already saw the posts about JWC rentals).

Copperas Cove is a nice place to live. Were a city of 32,032 and growing. We have a low crime which is the lowest in the whole area. We have great schools and a great football program. Robert Griffin who won the Heisman award is from Cove and is going into the NFL. Charles Tillman from Cove plays for Chicago Bears. If your looking for work, the only place available in Cove is GC services which are bill collectors. There are a couple of factory's in Lampasas, which is a little town 20 miles to our west. I work at one of them called Windsor Foods. They hire all the time. Killeen right next to Cove has limited jobs, but the whole area is growing fast and there is several projects underway, one which will create jobs in the medical field. Well here is the site for Copperas Cove http://www.ci.copperas-cove.tx.us/ Good luck.

Great schools, but limited recreation for kids. Nice city park and plenty of city park rec leagues for the kids, but pretty limited after that. Shopping is just so-so, but like iluvit73 pointed out, a new retail outdoor mall is in the works.
Crime is low, but the past two months burglaries are on the upswing. When the PD catches the thieves it will probably solve all of them, as they are most likely being done by out of school teenagers.

The Traffic just Sucks, so bad, not so certain about the crime rate lots of drugs in my hood, If I had a choice I would choose Gatesville or Burnet or Lampases. The Senior center shows how much the Cove Cares about its Seniors.

I love Cove!! There is soooo much to do in the area or within a short drive. Nice mix of town and country! After a decade of moving every 2 years with the Navy, this is where we have settled. WE LOVE IT!!!!
