    I moved to Glenburn 3 years ago. I live a quiet, safe neighborhood. There is no grocery store, healthcare facilities, or areas for teens to hang out but I live pretty close to the larger towns and city of Bangor, so the commute is not that bad.

    Glenburn is a nice town to live in. It is a lovely community with a great middle school and good people. Perhaps some of the roads could use some paving, especially in the developments like round stone and Jillian way, but overall it is a great place to live.
    The job market is hard, unemployment is high and taxes, cost of living is high. EMMC is a major employer and is experiencing financial difficulties thus laying employees off.
