A small town suffering from lack of investment by both public and private entities. There are attempts to have pride of place, but the pervasive attitude is one of close-mindedness and that the town and its citizens won't support anything that could be considered innovative. There are almost no opportunities for work in the immediate area. The downtown business area is a historic commercial district full of empty storefronts. The most prolific type of establishment is bars. Safety services are very good, considering the size of the service area. The school district in the town was once a source of pride but is now an embarrassment.

I'm a current resident of Wellington Ohio, seems like nothing really happens and when something does happen it is a small town so things get spread easily.
Small town living with lots of amenities nearby (within 25 miles in all directions) Norwalk, Ashland, Medina, Elyria/Lorain,North Olmstead.
