Hi,

I am Asian Indian with family and a daughter. We are moving from Phoenix and my job location will be is Dayton downtown.

Please suggest the good location with Asian Indian community nearby and good school district for kindergartner.

The rent expectation is around 1K.

As per the forum, Beavercreek seems to be good, but if you can share your opinion and suggestions that will be good. Also if there are any specific reviews about apartment or locality, it is most welcome.

Thanks,

I'd go with Beavercreek first. Kettering or Centerville might be good options as well.

In the Dayton area, the northern half of Beavercreek - nearest the mall - is the only area with any sizable Indian community. For that reason I would put the area head and shoulders above anything else in the Dayton metro area.

From pretty much anywhere in Beavercreek you're no more than 20 minutes from downtown.

Regardless of where you end up: just avoid any apartment complex owned by the Connor Group. There's too many horror stories floating around to consider living in any of their complexes.

Agreed. The apartments in northern Beavercreek, along with the area near Dayton Mall are the two centers of the Indian community. The Hindu temple is right across from the Beavercreek mall, I would reach out them as well as Welcome Dayton for more info.

www.welcomedayton.com

Here is a map from them:

To give you an idea of where the centers of the area's Asian populations lie.


As for a specific complex, check out the Promenade of Beavercreek.


Good luck!

Thank you for your inputs. Beavercreek seems to be final location and now looking for the nearby apartments. I see E.G. Shaw Elementary school as well nearby.

Any other inputs/suggestions are always welcome.

Shaw is a good elementary school. All of the elementary schools in Beavercreek are well positioned for educational growth (even Parkwood, which pulls from parts of Riverside). Shaw is rather walkable from many of those complexes (especially Royal Gateway and Mallard Landing). They have realligned the middle school feeding since they made the old Ferguson Middle School into a 9th Grade Building on the HS campus. Not sure which areas go to Ankeney and which to Coy. Both are well respected, so if you are here for the long term, there may be that to consider. Are you planning on buying eventually?

Rent will be the hardest item to fit into the bill. Beavercreek's rental rate (along with much of the nations) has risen pretty steadily over the last five years or so. Beavercreek's can be attributed to the local Air Force Base, which also happens to be the largest single-site employer in the state (20-25K people plus off base support and defense contractors).

I would consider looking for rentals in the privately owned condos and townhomes around there as well. There are a few forums here that mention specific places. Pretty much any place around the Fairfield Mall (either side of N. Fairfield Road) would be good. Most apartments are north of Kemp. Stay away from places north of I-675 along Col. Glenn Hwy. It isn't a bad area. Just most of the apartments are filled with students attending Wright State University across the highway from Beavercreek.

One difference between Dayton and the sprawling suburbias of the Sun Belt -I also came here from one - is you can be out of the center of the city here and into the far suburbs and then the country (not subdivisions full of people who think they live in the country) within a half hour. From Highway 35 it's a straight shot to Beavercreek, and what you seek is there. Beavercreek also has a lot of people who work at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base not far away. 35 also doesn't bottleneck as much as I-70 does, a lot of which has to do with construction that should be wrapping up soon. It's been torn up the whole time I've been here.

Thanks for the replies. Almost finalizing the leasing in Beavercreek.
One more question, as I am moving from Phoenix and not much aware of snow in Ohio. Till now i heard that the winter is mild. But to prepare for upcoming snow, please advise if snow tires are necessary, if yes any specifications ?

TIA.

You won't need snow tires. An average snowstorm brings a few inches of snow, but the main roads are usually plowed and drivable shortly after it stops snowing (or even while it's snowing, if it's not coming down too quickly). It's rare for large amounts of snow to stay on the roadways for days at a time. If you drive slowly and maintain your distance, you should be fine.

I doubt anybody here has had snowtires since the 1980s. If it gets bad enough, they shut the whole city down for a day and tell people to stay home.
