I have grown up & lived in Howell my whole life. The town is forever growing and expanding, welcoming new families, new schools, homes & businesses through the years. It’s a warm & welcoming town despite how large it is. You can enjoy movies in the park or a walk through the reservoir. Without a doubt I would not hesitate to raise my family here. You feel safe and protected by the large police force & local volunteer fire house. It’s a great town with constant improvements & local support. The one change I would like to see if that the township would preserve more land and find a way to lessen traffic so it stays off of the back roads. Route 9 is a main highway but runs parallel to many back roads into neighborhoods. It’s unpleasant to watch and be apart of the back up into the neighborhoods. The traffic should be condensed some how and especially for safety purposes kept off as much as possible any of the residential roads
Excellent place to live with a family. A lot of things to do. Family-oriented. One direction is horses and land. The other direction is access to every store imaginable. Couldn’t be happier!
