Union Township Reviews

We have lived in this town for 2 years and are planning to move out within the year. The residents of this town and/or the people who pass through it have no regard for the environment. There is literally litter everywhere. It's quite disgusting to look at every time you walk outside your house or get in your car and drive around the town and see that people blatantly throw trash everywhere but a garbage can. You don't see this as flagrant or at all in other towns. The taxes are high and there is nothing to show for it. The school system is rated very poorly, the crime rating is poor. The municipalities don't do a good job with clean-up, preservation and maintenance of the grounds or roads. People are not neighborly. Everyone keeps to themselves. Union was once regarded as a nice town, but I feel it went downhill over the years.

Very clean, safe, and friendly community! The town is also convenient, but spacious. Schools, shopping areas, police station, churches, parking lots, parks, are just around the corners.
I grew up here all my life and it is what I know as home. There is not much to do here but they just renovated union center and it is looking cleaner and the food has gotten much better. The union Friday night light games are a lot of fun, especially when you are in the student section cheering for you peers!
