I'm very glad I grew up in this great family town. Courtland township has beautiful lakes, nice running trails, and awesome restaurants. Make sure to stop by Uchellos wink wink I work there.
Feel safe and at ease in my neighborhood
This city has been a wonderful place to grow up in and I would do it all over again too. The community is strong and vibrant, growing everyday
very little crime happens due to community communication.
Every road you look down you can see people running and biking or walking everyday. The restaurants all offer gluten free and veterinarian alternatives. The city has a huge hiking path and sports complex for almost every sport out there.
Besides the hard Michigan winters the weathers pretty good. The winters I grew up with so I don't know anything else and I've never had to worry about flooding,tornadoes or anything else.
First of there is a brewery right downtown that is across the parking lot from a super fancy restaurant. Head about two blocks downtown and there's a bar that has been there for over 100 years with a famous hot dog contest. Although I am underage and do not drink so the bar life and over all variety of the drinks and drink specials in the area are kind of over my head.
The employment in the area all depends on where your at. Some places will treat you respectively and won't pay unfairly and give you time off and such. Other places in this same area are a bit more stingy with their money and don't care about how the employee is feeling or what may be going on at home.
Right downtown the houses are closer together, as would be expected. However in the neighborhoods and farther out form the city there is good distances between the houses. Yards are will kept and the neighborhoods are safe.
The parks and rivers are well kept. There are many opportunities to be outside enjoying the beautiful outdoors by walking/running/biking the trails, tubing or canoeing on the river, or fishing.
There is will always be crime, however great comfort can be found in the professional response system. Police are almost always visible in their patrol and just being involved in the city's social life. If an issue comes up the community of Rockford can trust that the local emergency responses will take care of it quickly and properly.
Michigan has its typical ups and downs as far as the weather is concerned. The winter does pose more issues with transportation, and there is the occasional severe thunder storm in the summer. Slight rise in the river levels may occur in the Spring, but no damage to local businesses or houses has been done,
The best part of being employed in this area is the community. Good customer service is valued to thank the people and there business.
Many business owners are the locals who live in or near the city. Everyone is very friendly and welcoming to the public and customers. There are events put on by the City Chambers of Commerce that continue through the year for families to be out and about enjoying the great city of Rockford.
Rockford, Michigan has a great overall crime and safety rate. There is little to no crime and when there is the police get right to the job. They are fast when they respond there is a great deal of safety in Rockford.
From what I know of Rockford, Michigan they try to do their best on the public service of the area. However, they could work on filling potholes and removing ice from the rods. Our local representatives are doing what they think is best for the area and are trying their hardest to make Rockford a better place.
