"Chartier in Harrison Township, MI (part of Metro Detroit)"

Chartier is a side street in Harrison Township. Harrison Township is part of Metro Detroit. It is a half hour outside of Detroit. It is a boating community, located on the shores of Lake St. Clair. Chartier itself is only 3 miles from Detroit Metropolitan Beach. There are only homes located on the street, so it is very quiet! The majority of the homes here were not real old but many properties included large trees. The backyards are huge and a great place for kids to run around. The community is very safe and the neighbors are open, generous, and sharing.
I grew up on Chartier. It was one of the best possible places for a kid to grow up. From our street we could access the bike pathway that leads to Metro Beach.
There are a few drawbacks. The first is that most of the properties in the area do not have access to sewers, so they use a septic field. The second is many of the roads are dirt roads and in early spring it can be a real headache, because the mud is difficult to navigate (but not impossible). The third is its proximity to Selfridge Air Force Base. Selfridge ANG was still an active base when I moved away, and very often I heard jet planes flying overhead.
The benefits of living in this lovely, quiet community, far outweight any drawbacks. It is a perfect setting for children, newlyweds and retirees. The community is an active one and most stores are within a 5-10 minute drive. The school district, Lanse Creuse, is also a very good one!
