You might find this economic report useful http://www.economicexpert.com/a/Uxbridge:Massachusetts.html but, if you are really curious, you should go to Uxbridge, MA yourself and probably go shopping at Hannaford or maybe at a Victory or White Hen Pantry and interact there, maybe even visit the public library http://www.librarytechnology.org/lwc-displaylibrary.pl?RC=8107.
Sorry to seem so obtuse, but a community that may seem friendly to one person, may not seem so to another. You know yourself best.
Best of luck and if I can be of any more help, please don't hesitate to contact me directly.
I agree that a trip to Hannaford supermarket will give you a good idea about diversity and friendliness. If you approach the locals in a friendly manner you can expect most of us to respond in kind. Even us old folks who have seen so many changes in town over the last 60 years.
Hope this helps,
Uxbridge is a very socio- economic & ethnically diverse town. Over the past 10 years has seen lots of growth and growing pains (like every town that grows). To see if it fits for you in terms of schools here are two sites to check out:
as for checking out the town via the internet:
Visit the town, its town hall, it grocery store (which was a Victory - but is now a Hannaford), Public library. Its town common, or a few of the stores downtown or one of the pizza shops- talk to the people and get a feel for it.
For schools- visit the schools- talk to the teachers, principals
Look at the town website: what does it offer in info, in meetings to attend
Be as proactive in your search as possible- as I tell my buyers - You are buying the home, I can tell you all I want , but you have to live here- it needs to meet your needs- not mine.
That being said, good luck in your search, if you would like some help from an experience agent who know the area, please feel free to contact me.
