i Lived in East Vincent / Spring City, and loved living there. It was very peaceful and quiet. I now live in Royersford and I'm happy there as well. the people in the area are very community oriented.I never had a problem with crime in East Vincent, never and I lived there for 6 years. Good luck with your house hunting

East Vincent. Generally very good. "Old boys club" of supervisors has been ousted.
Someday...sewer and water will come to your home at a premium if you are presently on septic and a well. These fees are pretty pricy. Don't fall for the "it will never come out this far" myth.
Be careful of your neighboring properties. This is a township that is following Limerick in expansion. The supervisors cannot hold off developers forever....solicitors cost BIG money and the taxpayers will only pay increasing taxes so long!
Businesses in this corridor(from Phoenixville to Parkersford) tend to be on the lower end of the food chain, thus a lot of under-utilized properties. These properties are being left vacant while other properties are being allowed to develop. i.e. Rt 724 from Rt23 junction through Parkersford.

The borough of Spring City has some nice areas on the EV side..and the sewer and water are under control as the borough is not expanding anymore. Very few building lots left.

Police, fire and ambulance services all work well as this is an area with deeply overlapping coverage.

PS I have lived in both.. and presently live in SC.

Hope this helps.
