Working in London
I love this little town! It is about 25 minutes west of Columbus and is such a nice town to raise my family in. The school systems are great and my girls are active in Girl Scouts. The only thing I would change is the amount of pizza places that are in this town, we desperately need something other than pizza and Mexican.
What I like about London is I have lived in or near London my entire life and though it has become what Im "use" to I love the family community aspect. Though our small town does not have much of its own to offer, just about wherever you go you will see a familiar face. There is not much to go out and do unless you want to go out for pizza, get gas, or buy a new car! London has plenty of pizza places, gas stations, and car dealerships. One good thing about London is it is in between Columbus and Dayton so it will be a good middle ground for commuters. It is mostly a safe community except for some severe incidents here and there. London has its flaws but what town doesn't? It will always hold a place in my heart and be my home!
For the most part London is a quiet peaceful place to live. However, the downside to that is the way the traffic lights are timed. You seem to spend more time waiting at lights and waiting behind those who are turning that actual drive time. A way to make that better is to create one of the two lanes into a turn only lane, that way, people turning are not blocking through traffic. The other not so great about London is the drug problem. I would not feel safe walking the streets alone and it terrifies me when I see children doing so themselves. The drivers of London, including within the neighborhoods, have no regard for children's safety. My neighbor's dog was just recently hit by a car and left. People drive too fast through the neighborhood and there is that large possibility that children playing outside could get hit. I am proud to say that London PD do their best to patrol my neighborhood and that does help with the safety factor.
