I like living in the Township of Sumpter it is a very diverse community, as it it the oldest black community in Michigan, and the people are very nice and keep their properties clean and they neighbors look out for each other. Also, it is very rural and the homes are moderate to high.

I live on the New Boston/Sumpter Township line. It's a nice and quiet area. The New Boston school district is great! I love that the metro park is so close to our home. I believe we picked a great area to move. If we were ever to move from our home, I would look to buy in the same area. Hopefully in the future not much will change. I really enjoy it the way it is.
The general atmosphere is pretty quite. We have AppleFest the first weekend of October, which is usually pretty neat, and there are a lot of summer festivals Downriver and in Belleville. I'd love to live out here, but the property taxes are most expensive compared to adjacent areas. I think it's a pretty good area to raise a family in, and as for the future, I think it will be less farmland and more subdivisions, unfortunately.
