I recently am moving to Millville, New Jersey and before I made the decision to move I spent quite some time studying the area. It is a very small homey area, there are several different kinds of stores, restaurants and hangout spots for people of all ages to engage in. There isn't much for me to say about a change for Millville, Nj, however if there is one thing I would like to change is the speed limit, almost every street is 25-30 miles an hour. Its just too slow! Overall Millville is a nice area, and it is still growing into an even more versatile city of south jersey.

I've lived in Millville a few years now. Although online it says it's very unsafe, we have never had an issue. We do live on the edge of Millville so it's quiet and all the neighbors know each other. When I have to go into town it's not too bad, no worse than shopping anywhere else honestly. I think ultimately it depends on who you associate with and have around in your life. I do think the schools could be better!
Millville at one time was a nice little city.

There was an active arts district and some night life, but in the past 10~12 years starting with the economical recession of 2008. Things started to fall apart. 12 years onward nothings has really recovered.

I work with local businesses and non-profits, people have big dreams and big hearts... but there is something that keeps the locals and small businesses down. Everyone I know and grew up with is basically working 2 or 3 oddball jobs to just get by.

Maybe it's high taxes. maybe it's high cost of living. maybe it's just a real general disinterest in people giving a damn about their communities.

I've been living in the area for over 30 years. While this town was never a diamond. It's been on a continual downward slide for over a decade now.
