My husband and I found a nice, affordable apartment with lots of amenities. We both have jobs near by. Lots of restaurants and a mall nearby. Other than that, there's not much to do. The gas station up the street from us was robbed recently which is clearly a little concerning.

The city of West carrollton has very low crime rate. The schools right now have open enrollment which does cause a little problems with people not living in the community and just going to school here. They do not take pride in the city as the only thing they do is go to school here. I would like to see the community come together more as a whole. If everyone would come together more levies would pass and as a whole the schools would become better. Friday nights used to be football Friday and everyone in the city would go to the games, but now since people don't actually live here, they don't have that kind of pride. Overall this is a nice little community for all.
West Carrollton is a quite and safe town. When some think about the Dayton area they probably think that it is a busy and crime riddled area, but West Carrollton doesn't have that feel. There is a lot to do around the area and also within decent time travel to many other activities. I do think that the houses are way too close to each other, that there is barely any yard space between each house which limits what could do at your own house, or that you hear much of what your neighbors are doing.
