Blackman Charter Township Reviews
Not much to do. Kind of isolating. There's a clearly visible wealth gap between the impoverished communities of color and the middle class/upper middle class white families. Not the most progressive area, not the most conservative area either. But it's very conservative. Growing up as a closeted transgender and queer person here was very difficult, and I can't say the area is LGBT friendly. There is a lot of bigotry, racism, and anti lgbt-rhetoric. However, there's some very accepting people here too, I would say in a smaller number. As far as geography, the area has a lot of beautiful nature and is close to major bodies of transportation. The natural beauty of the countryside areas here is very nice. A lot of farmland in the more rural zones. Most of the township has a "suburban" feel. If you're a straight, middle-class white family here, you'll probably fit right in. If you're LGBT or a person of color, you may have a more difficult time here. It's not terrible, but it's not great.
I've lived in the same neighborhood on Evanston all of my life and it may be a stretch to say this but I think it is probably one of the safest neighborhoods in Blackman township. Nothing really major happens in the neighbor hood we don't have break ins or angry or aggressive neighbors. In my neighborhood I know a lot of the people around us, we talk on accession and I've known them since I've lived in my house.
The schools are great in this area. Most people are friendly. The roads are terrible, work is being done but the construction on what is being done makes no sense. People of dying is high here, a lot of car accidents, and shootings downtown. There are always stray cats and the town is pet and family friendly to the community.
We have shootings all the time around Jackson. I had things stolen from my house and the sad part is know who stole them but no one can do anything about it without the proof.
It's an okay place to live in. Not sure if I want to spend my life in a trailor park. But it's a home, security and a roof is over my head so cannot complain.
Considering I have never lived anywhere else for a long period of time, I have no way to compare it to any other locations, but so far it has been a nice place to live.
The city I live in just keeps getting worse and it really scares me sometimes. Jackson used to be a nice and safe place to live. Police are only visible at the end of the month when they need their quota.
The city and area i live in is small, i would prefer living in a bigger town because there are more people and everyone doesn't know everyone.
There is some crime in my city but it is not bad in my part of town. The roads are not the nicest but They seem to fill pot holes within a week or two which is nice.
There is a ton of crime in jackson, but jackson has some of the biggest prisons in the state of Michigan. I feel like our police do a very good job about the crimes that go on. There are a lot of drug dealing and gangs here in jackson.
Growing up here was filled with many life lessons and experiences. I would never want to start a family here, Jackson is not where I want to live when I get older. Im glad I am even getting out of Michigan for college. The atmosphere here is alright. Jackson is a pretty big area, but I feel like there is not enough going on. There is a lot of crime and I do not want to be around that as I get older. I would like to live in a safer area.
by schools houses are nice-in city they are dirty
great close to schools but worse down town
there is not much to do besides go out to eat here
Most of my neighbors are people that I grew up with so we are a pretty tightly-knit neighborhood which is nice.
If any crimes have happened in my area, they have been so minor that I have not really heard about them.
