Utica is a small city, if you plan to go to a school around this city live in one of the close cities because of how much taxes you will have living here, the city is nice but its probably better for the city is to not be a city no longer the reason behind this is that it would help the residents if the taxes weren't so high and that there is nothing in this city that actually attracts people unless you like drinking at the 5 bars in the city or if you like minor league baseball. Also doesn't help that the city is between two highways so during rush hour it will take you 30 min at the least to get anywhere.

Utica is a small suburb that is quite and not really urbanely growing at this time. Not much to do, a few good restaurants in the area but mostly I find you go to other towns or cities when looking for activities. Traffic is very bad, roads full of potholes. Otherwise seems like a safe area, don’t hear of very much crime.
I enjoy the sense of community surrounding the high school in particular, the homecoming parade really brings everyone together in support of all the programs through the school.
