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.

I love the people here. It's so quiet and kind. We have everything within walking distance and wonderful neighborhoods. I can't imagine living somewhere else, but when it's time, it's time to say the goodbyes. I always recommend people to move within this area. I mean, my Uncle is moving his family here! Especially love Fourth of July Weekend!!!!
Chili is a fairly average mid-sized town. There are several small and large businesses, including stores and restaurants. People are fairly friendly.
