I built my house here 22 years ago. The neighborhoods are clean. The people are great! The township seems to have their stuff together.

I would prefer to live more south or out west, I love the warm weather and the people here are not always very nice. I am originally from Virginia, and the people from where I am from are a lot nicer than those up north here.
Everyone here is extremely welcoming. Love it here
