Republic is a great place to live if you want the small town feel with all the large city perks. We have lots of places to shop, eat, event centers, and a very active community program. We have lots of sports, an outdoor theater, a huge community aquatic center and more. With several beautiful and well kept parks, outdoor life is thriving. The cost of living is lower than larger cities, and the crime rates are very low. I have lived here for 10 years and loved every minute of it!

Republic is a great place to grow up. Everyone knows everyone and the people here are full of life and love. There have been many new buildings and business come around and we are having a great economy boost!
Republic has been a pretty good town for me. I've lived here for almost three years, and I haven't had any problems. There is definitely crime, but I haven't had any first hand experience. The town is a general friendly area, with numerous parks, which makes it very kid friendly. The only thing I would like to change would be to widen some of the roads, find a solution for a crazy intersection, and maybe get some more entertainment for older kids and teenagers.
