Saint Clair Shores, MI

Pros: the lake, the parks

Cons: city government is too clicky, too many ordinances unfair administration of penalties, too high of taxes, old delopitated businesses on main streets, crime is on the rise, city lots not maintained, cronyism is rampant, very few citizens care, over 10% of homes are rental properties, builders only get things done through kickbacks to city officials, businesses are leaving,

This is a good place to leave or pass through
