Check out Streetsboro. It provides a direct route to Youngstown via I-80 (Ohio Turnpike) and is the starting point for I-480, which runs up to Cleveland.

Hi everyone,
Thanks again for all of your input. As it turns out, it seems like I might have been able to track down some remote work opportunities which will allow us to settle closer to my partner's job. I'm kind of interested in the liberty area -- i like the school district, in particular. It's hard to find information about the area itself though. Does anyone know much about it? For example, are there parts of it that are walkable? Does the school district overlap with a lot of different towns?
Would appreciate some more advice if anyone has the time. Or I can start a new thread if that would be better.
Thanks!!

Are you talking about Liberty Township, just north of Youngstown? I just want to make sure you're looking at the correct Liberty, because there is another one down by Cincinnati. I can't say I've ever heard anything really outstanding about the school district there. I would consider it average.

There are some really nice homes there. They have/had a decently large Jewish population there, and many of those people are/were business owners, lawyers, etc.

There are parts of the township that I would find to be desirable. There's good highway access there and shopping nearby. That being said, the taxes there seem to be higher than other areas. There are also parts of Girard (44420) that are Liberty Schools or vice versa.

Other than taxes, many locals don't like that Youngstown City people open-enroll their kids to Liberty Schools, and there is some crime in the areas off of the main drag on Belmont closer to Youngstown City.

Personally, I love many of the homes there, but I don't like the taxes or how the schools are going.

I would not consider Liberty walkable............maybe in the subdivisions, but certainly not walkable to amenities.

Girard on the other hand is pretty walkable, lots of sidewalks throughout town. It's a little more gritty, but their schools are ranked higher than Liberty's.

I know that schools may or may not be a big deal to you, but I would certainly buy in a good to great district if you want to get the money back out of your home if you need to resell.

If you have questions about a particular area of Liberty, a street or school district question I would be more than happy to help. I have a couple of friends of friends that teach at Liberty.
