Independence Township Reviews

3 reviews
the area tends to house older couples due to the fact that the houses are a little nicer, very pet friendly very few cars, so lots of dog walking on the street. people tend to live out here for longer than the average house occupancy, due to the fact that we live close to everyones workplace, yet far away enough to sustain privacy, and peace.

most homes are upper estates with higher than average cost, no vacant houses, cost of housing and utilities a little on the higher side.
i don't believe there have been incidents in which the police have been called to protect. all of the neighbors get along great , no mishaps have occurred.
