I like the atmosphere and location of Chesterfield Township the most. It is a very peaceful community, and it may seem like not much is going on in this area, but it is very close to several major cities, such as Trenton, Philadelphia, and New York City. Chesterfield's location allows people to spend a day in a bustling city, but return to a pleasant and safe town. However, I would change the amount of commercial shopping centers in Chesterfield, as there are few shops in the town, and most people have to go into neighboring towns to buy items in stores. I would also want more public transportation, such as a bus stop, so that people wouldn't have to drive so far to take a bus. Finally, I would like to see more public parks or recreation centers in Chesterfield so that recreation can become more prominent in the area. Overall, Chesterfield is a great town in because of the peaceful atmosphere and location to major cities in the U.S.

I have lived in Chesterfield Township for ten years, and I can say that my experience has been very good. Chesterfield is a nice, quiet community with little-to-no crime. There is a very large elementary school that provides great academics for the students, and it houses dedicated teachers. Overall, the town is very clean. The real estate is quite pricey. There is practically no night life, except the Chesterfield Inn, which is a fairly popular restaurant in town. My time in Chesterfield has been nothing but positive and I would recommend the community to others.
It's a great community; however, it could be better by being more open and friendly within the same community. Unity is what makes excellent neighborhoods.
