Clearfield is a wonderful place to inhabit a family. It is close to Hill Air Force Base, which helps in the feeling of protection. Being a military family myself, I find it to be the best place we have been stationed so far. The convenience of schools nearby homes keeps kids safe, and in harsh weather conditions, keeps families off the road. Clearfield may be a small city itself, but surrounding it is a city called Layton. If you head straight down the road, you come into Layton. There are restaurant, drug stores, shopping centers, and a mall, all within walking distance. In the fall, the trees are so pretty with different colors. In the winter, the trees fill with snow, making the roads a beauty to look at.
Clearfield is a small, acquaint, convenient, place to live if you love city life. I do not find myself leaving anytime soon!

I personally am here for work. I have live here for the past year I have had nothing but positive experiences. Clearfield is a developing family, friend, and military friendly. It is a small quaint community and easily accessible to local shopping centers, plazas, and everyday business. There is minimal traffic so the commute to get around is a breeze. The city has some remarkable and scenic views. There is an approximately a 25 minute scenic route to downtown Salt Lake City. Some of the most beautiful views amongst several hiking trails are my favorite. Clearfield is definitely a small town with a whole lot of character. The local police department here is wonderful. They are involved, patient, accountable, extremely friendly and serve the community well; definitely feel there is a do diligent to protect and serve the community.
I have been a current resident of Clearfield since July 2018. The apartment complex I reside in is kind of on the lower income end of the scale, not quite Housing Assistance low but what is called the working poor. Crime in my neighborhood is barely existential, but just like everywhere else, crime is only known if said criminals get caught. The only thing I would love to change about my neighborhood is the fact the soundproof cement wall barrier for the freeway was a little bit higher. The freeway can sometimes keep me up at night because it always sounds like someone is driving up and down my street at all hours of the night. In reality, it is still only the freeway. I have looked into earplugs or muffs to wear while sleeping.
