Macomb Township is a Safe community with excellent schools! It is a great place to raise a family with many different community events. The Macomb Township recreation center is a great community resource with a pool, rec center, and many activities for kids at a very reasonable price. The local public schools are top rated. They are building a new library next to the recreational center that is expected to be top notch. There are several great parks in the area and very close to Stony Creek Metro park with a nature center, boating, hiking, sledding, and many outdoor activities.

Macomb Township is a beautiful area in the suburbs of Detroit. The subdivisions are very safe and are a great place for children of all ages to hang out. Being a part of Chippewa Valley Schools, the schools are above average and one can get a lot of of them if they want to. On the other hand, with all of the residents, there are bound to be some troubled kids, but if your kids stay away from the trouble, this can be an excellent place to live and I would HIGHLY recommend it!
I have lived in Macomb for 14 years. Macomb is a very welcoming place with many stores and unique restaurants. Although it has gotten more and more crowded in the past few years, it is nice to see that people are still smiling and making ways to be kind and considerate of those around them. Recently, the roads have been getting better and better which makes driving more efficient and a lot safer, and in turn people are a lot happier and more calm on the road. It would be a great advantage for all if there were reflectors on the road, especially Hall Road because it would be a lot easier to see where the lanes are. But overall the roads are great and Macomb is a very nice and friendly place to live.
