research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.
In the Bethania Ct / Monarch Cres neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is

more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.

What you'll sense when you look around or drive the streets of this neighborhood is that many of the residences look the same because of this similarity of age.
