New Haven is a nice, upcoming community however it is very divided between the “old” New Haven and the residents of the “new” subdivisions in New Haven. Political scandals have plagued this little community for decades. Lots of young families though! Older areas being built up, fixed up. New subdivisions are very nice.

I've lived in New Haven for my entire life. The thing that I love about the town is that while everyone knows a lot of the people that surround them, it is the kind of place that you can still have your privacy. There aren't too many busybodies. I left the town for a short period and missed the atmosphere of the town so much. It has come such a long way since I was a kid.
In the Village of New Haven there is land that can consist of cropping, farming, and running a family. This town is small but mighty there is two schools, one public and the other that is a charter school. Both of them have been district qualifiers and district title winners in their sports department. Both Merritt Academy and New Haven Public Schools are striving and seeking greatness in their schools each day. Since I've been here my whole life, I desire to venture out this city since there are other areas that have more opportunities. This town is not up to date to other suburban cities, it will eventually get to that point in the future. There will possibly be a Recreational Center in the plans for the future for the increasing numbers of families that are moving to New Haven. They want the families and people living here have an opportunity to grow in an safe environment with activities and endless possibilities to interact with others.
