My overall experience with Jefferson Township has been outstanding ever since my family and I moved here in 2012. Jefferson Township is a great suburb of Columbus, Ohio because it has an amazing educational system and safe neighborhoods because there is little to no crime every year, which is definitely safe for children and kids in each neighborhood. Along with Jefferson Township having great educational schools and safe neighborhoods, Jefferson Township also has delicious restaurants and unique stores, which is definitely a plus in my book.

The residential complex at Jefferson Run is an excellent place for a family to move into. The area is very quiet and the neighbors are extremely friendly to one another along with their beautiful pets. Our association has made it their job to keep the neighborhood maintained by having landscapers keeping the area well kept and clean for the kids that come outside to play every evening. Overall, I would rank this peaceful suburban complex in the top 100 of place to live and I can definitely see new homeowners moving in and staying for many years.
The safety here in Blacklick is phenomenal due to the fact that there is hardly any crime that goes on around here and it is not often that you hear police sirens swarming through the streets. There is a police station very close although, they are hardly needed because there isn't any crime committed.
