Bedford Charter Township Reviews

Not quite sure because I've never had any personal experiences regarding crime/safety, which actually probably means this area is great! I've never heard any complaints from neighbors either.
This is a great area to live in, especially with a large family. There is plenty of space, a creek that runs through the back, and it is near the school playground. It's great!
There are no popular stores in the area. There are many local businesses that have gone out of business or are slowly going out of business. Kellogg's is the largest company in the area, and they are beginning to close down some of their factories in order to outsource. This is causing the small city to lose many people and businesses.
