I love Chesterfield (Cfield), I was originally born in St. Clair Shores, but I moved early in my childhood to Chesterfield. Chesterfield is all you really need in a town. Theres nice people everywhere, restaurants in every direction so you don't have to go far for a bite! Also, there's a Meijer right in the middle of Chesterfield, which is a great place to obtain new, fresh produce, or other products.

I love Chesterfield Township. I have lived here my whole life and I believe it is one of the safest areas in Michigan. The school districts for Chesterfield are Anchor Bay and L'Anse Creuse, depending on where in Chesterfield you live, and both are great school districts. The only thing about these schools is that there is some drug abuse at the high schools but very minimal. In terms of safety there are almost no break-ins to homes and almost no robberies of any kind. One thing I would change about Chesterfield is the road conditions. There are numerous potholes on every street that you turn onto and minimal effort to fix them. There is construction every year which fixes certain sections of the roads, but this is mostly done to add lanes on a road rather than to improve their condition.
In Chesterfield Township, there are some advantages and disadvantages. Some advantages are that my friends live close to me, many restaurants are close, and its a very outgoing city. Some disadvantages are that people are very impatient and at times rude. I wish people within my community can be more helpful to one another instead of being selfish. My friends and my school are important reasons why I have lived in Chesterfield Township until now. Chesterfield Township is overall slightly above average place to be around at.
