We have lived here about a year and came from a very populated suburb in Ohio. S. Russell is "semi-rural"...so quiet, extremely safe, plenty of amenities close by, charming Chagrin Falls minutes away, and a fantastic, small school district. The only negatives would be lack of diversity and major chains are 25-30 minutes away. I found that the city council/board is very curious about residential attitudes, and they actually listen and vote the direction that the majority of residents wish. The police force is always present and have a positive impact on the community - the kids love them. I have no complaints - only positives about our experience here so far.

This place is awesome, schools in Cuyahoga county without Cuyahoga taxes. No diversity at all and city counsel needs replaced badly... other than that no complaints. The police high five the kids on the way into school, the teachers reach out to parents and create regular dialog. The park is great and hopefully they are building a playground soon. Move here, you will be happy.
This is an excellent place to live if you want a peaceful, quiet, friendly community. Access to downtown chagrin falls and many parks. Far away enough from the urban sprawl, close enough if you want to do the Cleveland thing.
