    Olney residents enjoy the feel of a small hometown; at the same time, local activities give the town a modern hub charm. Diverse venues, services, and activities generate a strong community spirit, and the civic/homeowners associations within each neighborhood/subdivision reinforce this unity by coordinating events and making use of the recreational and educational sites in the area. With so many facilities—all close by to developments—there is a greater collective encouragement for involvement and pursuit at all levels. This is why, despite its comparably smaller population size, the town of Olney continuously earns ranking titles as the ideal place to live.
