Streetalk: Is Chico still a nice place to live?

Asked in downtown Chico

No. It’s dirty; too many homeless people; roads are terrible. I’ve lost count of how many front-end alignments on my car I’ve had. The population has outgrown the infrastructure that we have, especially when the [students] are back in town. Traffic in certain parts of town, such as Mangrove or East Avenue, can be a hassle.

I think it is. I’ve only lived here for about a year, but I think it’s a really nice town. I think it’s a good community and it’s a fun place to be.

For the most part, yes. I love the town, I love the atmosphere. It has a nice nature feel to it, as well. It’s got the downtown city aspect. The only downfall is sometimes a feeling of a lack of safety—in some parts.

Well, I live in Paradise. There’s lots of stuff to do here compared to there. It has its share of issues, but I do believe it’s a nice place to live.
