- The convenience of a city, in a village-like setting. (Melanie, 2 years)
- The people. (Anonymous, 5 years)
- It’s a fairly quiet town and close to the city. I love having a locally owned grocery store that is right downtown and not a big chain store. (Amanda, 11 years)
- Small town atmosphere, community access to things like the library, pool, bike paths, dog park, baseball/soccer fields and parks. The schools are excellent in having resources to provide to students (iPads and music programs). (Jessica, 14 years)

- Taxes. (Debra, 18 months)
- No high-speed internet in my neighborhood. (Melanie, 2 years)
- Home prices. (Anonymous, 5 years)
- Not many good options, most places serve primarily burgers and chicken. I would love some variety without having to drive into Fitchburg/Madison. There is nothing to do for entertainment since the bowling alley closed and because a church, and there is no laundromat. House prices have jumped up significantly, rent is high as well. (Amanda, 11 years)
- The way we spend money, how much is being spent on the Matt House for it to be a museum? I’d rather see an outside pool or after school center for teens. I also don’t like that the farmers market left. (Jessica, 14 years)

Verona, Wisconsin: Advice
Any advice for people moving to Verona?
- Good luck finding a house you can afford. (Robin, 5 months)
- Walk around town, you will enjoy the view and friendly people you meet. (Debra, 18 months)
- Take the plunge! Lots of lovely people, great neighborhoods and beautiful scenery. (Melanie, 2 years)
- Taxes are high- make sure you know what your yearly tax rate will be when you buy your home. (Anonymous, 5 years)
- I would advise against it. Taxes are high, houses are hard to find at a reasonable price. It’s either condos or $400,000+ houses. The community is growing far too fast and feeling less and less communal every year. Many chain restaurants/businesses are coming in. The plan for where Ace Hardware is sounds ridiculous. What screams hometown?…not a three story retail front box diagonal to the over valued Matt’s House in downtown. (Jessica, 14 years)
