I do not want to live in Youngstown, but would like any information on some of the smaller towns around that area. I have 3 children two will go to elem. school and a son who will be entering the 10th grade. Any advice on small, but good schools would be a great help.

Thanks

Youngstown when people first think of it, they think of factories that have went downhill. But Youngstown is changing for the better. Youngstown has a 2010 plan to add more greenspace and new housing developments across the city. Youngstown has been bringing in clubs, restaraunts, and businesses back to the downtown area. But you want to know about the suburbs. Columbiana is a great town. Growing at a pretty fast rate but the schools have about 300 people in them. About 350 in the highschool. Columbiana has a great park. Firestone Park. It has a great pool. And the park is awesome. Columbiana in about 6 miles from the PA border and is bringing in residence from PA. Columbiana really is a great city. It has a population of about 5,800 people. It has and older district with antique shopping and the newer district with the Oakmont Plaza and fast food restaraunts. Columbiana would be my first choice. Canfield is an upper class city with about 8,000 but really really great schools. Boardman is a huge suburb with about 40,000 and traffic is really bad as businesses and the Southern Park Mall and many outlet malls are there. But that is the main place for shopping in the southern Youngstown suburbs. Poland has about 3,000 but has probaly the best schools in southern Youngstown. Niles is the major shopping town in northern Youngstown with about 21,000. The EastWood Mall is going under millions of dollars of renovations. But it is a very nice mall i wouldnt think it would need renovations. I guess it is adding another food court and adding more to the mall. It has a target and many other retail stores. Newton Falls is just west of Youngstown but has plenty of boating oppurtunities and many great looking lakes around. Good for summer swimming, boating, fishing. All in all Youngstown has some great suburbs you would have to come check them out as i dont know what you would really like to see. But if i were you i would check out Columbiana. It has alot of new developments going on. Some of the developments are The Links at Firestone which is a great looking housing development on an awesome looking golf course which i will have to try out sometime lol. And they are also planning on building a Giant Eagle and smaller stores by the development. They have Terra Verde which is a development right next to Firestone Park with two lakes and bike and walk trails to the park. They have Arrowhead which is condos around Arrowhead lake. And another new development called Stonebrook. That one is really coming out nice when i was last there. Good Luck when you head there. Great towns all around.

Yes any time. Best of luck to you and your family on your new move. I guarantee that you will be happy with the Youngstown suburbs. They have everything to offer. Each town doesnt have everything but you only have to travel about 20 mins to get what you need. They are greatly sized and very safe with great schools.
