We're moving back to South Jersey soon and we've been looking in the Gloucester County area. We found a nice subdivision with reasonably priced homes under our budget of $300k in Mount Royal 'Weather Vane Farms'. I was wondering if that was a safe area to live. We only have a grown daughter so schools aren't an issue.

I pass by that subdivision everyday. It looks pretty nice, although it backs up to a busy road and the NJ Turnpike. It is pretty isolated from the town of Mt. Royal because the road to Mt. Royal has no shoulder or sidewalks. To answer your question - I don't think Mt. Royal nor that subdivision have any major safety issues.

Thank you very much for answering! I didn't know it was so close to the Turnpike, so I'll keep that in mind when we go looking there.

You might want to try calling local police department (google for their non-emergency number) and ask about the development. Are you working with a realtor? They might have resources to help you get a better idea of location, demographics, etc.

Not at the moment, I'll have to find one then. And thanks for the tip calling the police department, I would have never thought of that!

It's pretty close to Mantua Creek. I wonder if there is an issue with flooding.
