Does anyone have any experience with these townships? Good idea or bad idea?

Yeah, I attended Ave Maria University for a while, so I lived right in the center of Ave Maria Town. At that time (2007), it was still brand-new, so it felt like a very clean, well-lit ghost town. I'm sure things are different now.

The good thing about a consciously Catholic community is that, of course, Christ is the center of the community. In Ave Maria, the church is literally in the center of the town, in fact. Catholics of like in mind in the same area also strengthen one another, and generally make for better neighbors, I imagine.

The bad thing is that when you gather up all the Catholics in one place, you're taking the light away from everywhere those Catholics would've been otherwise. I also imagine that Catholic communities are very family-oriented (not bad at all), but it means there isn't crap to do after the sun goes down. I remember at Ave Maria, some nights I was literally the only person awake in the entire town around 3 or 4am except for the campus guards.
