Warren is a large city with many things going on. There is a divide between the north and south and I believe that to be due to the local government. The city square area and community centers are plentiful and have much to offer. However, a lot of it is senior age centered. There are plenty of chain retail stores but also a lot of mom and pop companies which makes it nice for me to get that personal service aspect. The school system to dwindling due to the lower enrollment in public schools . The charter schools are hurting the entire public system. It is a large area city and the roads seem to be always under construction

I grew up in Warren and subsequently moved to neighboring cities around metro Detroit. Living in Warren would be a great place if it weren't for the level of corruption in the city government. I attended Cousino high school and believe that I received a high-quality education that amply prepared me for college. Warren Consolidated Schools had a great reputation for academic excellence. Warren Consolidated had, and still has, programs available for students interested in theater, building trades, food service and radio broadcasting that are not readily available in other districts.

It is one of the largest cities in Michigan but offers little service to it's residents. If the city corruption stopped, I would award it with 5 stara.
If you plan on owning a home in Warren consider my advice in addition to doing as much research as possible. First off, with the exception of East Point and Center Line; Warren ranks 3rd in having the highest property taxes of the 27 communities in Macomb county. And they just raised taxes again (Nov 2017)...
When you purchase your home, they will assess the taxable value higher then it should be...When you contest those taxes and go before the board, they will fight tooth and nail to maintain their revenue...You will have to go before the state of Michigan and appeal which takes time and another day off work.

No parks anywhere...Just about every square foot of the city is brick and mortar so it is not a good place to raise a child. The Police and Fire are excellent services but I find paying $3700 in property taxes an insult..If you plan to move to warren you will be paying for an overpopulated city hall and subsidies for the GM tech center...
