Ashtabula Reviews

36 reviews
All Categories
I moved to Ashtabula in April 2016. What used to be a prosperous town surrounded by railroads and fishing has now become a sad desolate drug infested town. Where many people came to work here and create a better life for themselves have now had to move because the economic market had died off and people now struggle to find any forms of employment. Every day there are counts of how many people have been sent to the hospital or died due to an over dose. What I would like to see change is the community both government, commercial and the local citizens rally together, end the poverty, rid the dangerous drugs, create a self sustaining community for those that are homeless. Require for those patients that have been blessed to survive an over dose to stay in rehab. Make them better, help them find a job and create some movement to effect change and create a better economy here.
Ashtabula is a beautiful town especially in the fall when the leaves are changing colors. With this being said, the nightlife has a lot to be desired. Not many things, if any, are open late at night and because of this you have to travel to go out. There use to be a lot of jobs available here in Ashtabula but sadly now there is not. If local investors could invest in new shops and business it would created jobs and we would have better job opportunities which would increase the real estate market. I would love to one day see some of these changes implemented into my hometown so it can be a better place.
What I would like to see change in ashtabula most would have to be the economy. Other than fast food and cell phone stores there are not many job opportunities. The second thing I
Would like to see change about Ashtabula would be the drug problem. It is getting
Out of hand. The police are trying to get a hold on it, but the problem is very serious.
