Moving from a far southwest suburb of Chicago, I love the past seven years living in this small agricultural city whose residents want to preserve its open land agricutural feel. I feel like I am on vacation every day. Homes being added to the city will sit on acre lots and retail will be limited while hoping to complete the Ashton Developed shopping area. Weddington Road will be expanded due to the impact of towns that surround its current borders. This is a town of community churches, sports and family gatherings hoping to include more small town, healthy family activities. My hope is to expand walking and bicycling trails to connect our community member to easy, yet beautiful access to shopping and activities while keeping its congestion minimal.

Wesley Chapel is a welcoming area with plenty of stores and people to meet. Because many stores surround this area, there are plenty of job opportunities and places to buy all of your home needs. There have been times where Wesley Chapel has struggled in areas but my overall experience is very good and I suggest that people consider living here to enjoy the same experience.
I moved to Wesley Chapel in 2004 from a town in New Jersey. I consider it my home town for all intents and purposes, and I feel proud in saying so. Wesley Chapel fostered me from the time I was a first grader to the time I was a senior in high school. The local elementary school was filled with teachers who supported their students and were truly passionate about what they were doing. As I made my way into high school, that same mentality prevailed. There is a large shopping center in the middle of the town that hosts plenty of shops and restaurants, and the housing developments in the area are great. Proud to say I was able to grow up here.
