Working in Taunton
Taunton is a very family friendly town. The neighborhoods are safe and are beautifully maintained by the homeowners who take pride in their homes. Taunton is very diverse, full of hardworking people trying to find that American Dream. Taunton has a great location. You can be in Providence or Boston in less than an hour.
I would say that my overall experience with Taunton is relatively decent. I do not think that Taunton is a bad city or place to reside. I have had relatively good experiences with the school systems and they have a pretty diverse body of students in my opinion. It is affordable to live here in Taunton, which is always a positive. However I believe that some changes can be made. Taunton could probably be a little safer than it is currently and it could be a lot cleaner than it is. The city is littered with garbage, which really dims the potential that Taunton has.
I am a fairly new resident to Taunton. I find that like most urban towns, the quality depends on the part of town you're in. I will say that I have noticed a lot of up and coming neighborhoods being built and renovated. I've been in Taunton for about a year and have seen constant improvements being made to roads/housing/businesses etc
