lived there since 1979.
what exactly are you looking for?
the property taxes are relatively low, the highway dept. does an excellent job keeping the streets clean and clear, and the houses vary in prices depending which area you choose.
my biggest complaint is the town doesn't do much about barking dogs, and caters to those who have dog kennels. i battled one neighbor for 15 years until he finally moved. some politics there, but i won't get into it here.
also, there are no sewars so everyone has a septic system, and the clay soil in many parts creates some standing water issues. our back yards gets flooded every spring, and we have asked the town to help with little results.
family oriented? what did you mean by that? the town hall offers events year round for the family. they have a several acres where they hold various events.
