Working in Chili
I grew up in chili, with that being said I think that plays a role in why I like the community. Overall I have enjoyed my experience in this town. I think that it’s a safe town to live in and have a family in. If I could change something’s about this town it would be to have less littering/pollution, more community events, and more family owned/small businesses. One change I would like that we have no control over is the weather. Rochester weather is awful, you can have fall, winter, spring, and summer all in one day. I would recommend living in this town, it’s affordable and has great schools! I enjoy the diversity that we have in this area, there are so many people from different backgrounds and cultures. I think that is important to have, especially when you are raising kids.
Growing up in Chili, I found that the community worked together. I moved to this town in 4th grade and graduated from Gates Chili High School. The community always helps each other. I was part of many programs as a high schooler where we would go to the middle and elementary school to help with students during their class. As a music student, every year, we would hold a "bottles and can drive" to raise money for the trips we would go on, and the community would either donate bottles and cans or come help sort them with the students. It was a fantastic journey to be part of this community.
This is a beautiful town. It’s growing and improving every year. It is a diverse area with opportunities of all kinds for housing, education, small businesses and friends. The only thing I would change is lowering the property taxes.
