I would love for drug use to go down and the village to be cleaner. Phoenix has been a wonderful community for decades but as time goes on, people leave and new people join our beautiful community not being able to see the beauty like the ones who created it.

Phoenix is a very small town in Central New York. The school district is very small, which can be challenging for some people. There isn’t much to do in the town itself but it’s a good distance from Syracuse and Oswego. There are right cliques throughout Phoenix because it’s such a small town, so that can be frustrating if you’re not a part of them.
It is a very good neighborhood and very friendly. The residents are very kind and hardworking. The police department are very hardworking. There are not a lot of job opportunities in the town but outside of the town there are. There are many different scenic areas of Phoenix. Very nice area for visitors to go and see the town. If you are interested in boating, there are great rivers that have very enjoyable, family docks.
