Up and coming, but needs to change its demographic - 3/18/2013
Lived here a few years and kept asking myself why. The city had poor planning and no vision, but it seems to be getting better. Alot of younger people have moved in, but the city council is not sensitive to the needs of the changing community. The infrastructure is poor as the roads are the worst I have ever seen of any place I have lived in the US. Access throughout the city is poor for buisnesses to gain any ground. The locals demand more retail and restaurants, but the council solution is to develop more medical and stores that are not family based. Seriously how many medical facilities, pizza deliveries, and auto part stores do we need? Lets make everyone fat and charge them an arm an a leg to give them a chance to shop for their goods outside of the city.
The building sites are old and shabby and are an eyesore and looks like something out of the 60's. They either need a facelift or torn down and the city should mandate it (i.e the Frontier building and half the buildings on Pearl). Pearl also needs to be widened to give the buisness a chance to allow fo more traffic and increased exposure.
It seems like the city council is creating an economy for the dead and not the living, with the addition of the new Panera may make it interesting, but we need to start getting more retail to keep the tax revenue in the city and draw people in, not scare them away.
On the positive note the city is safe because all the tax revenue is going to Public safety, so at least we have something to be proud of.[read more...]

Brunswick - 9/11/2007
Brunswick school are rated excellent, and are all close. The city has many parks, neighboorhoods with walking paths, and amenities. Taxes in Medina County are much less than Cuyahoga County. Our Recreation Center has many swim programs, nature camps, and youth sporting events (something for every age). Tons of shopping like Marcs, Giant Eagle, Home Depot, (Town Center), new medical centers, and lots of new business moving to our area it is really blooming here! With Strongsville to the North you also have SouthPark Center and Cleveland Clinic Medical Bldgs, Borders, Panera, Target, Wal Mart just to name a few. Many new subdivisions are being built in Brunswick and many new fancy cars to show off at the local car shows.[read more...]
Avoid Brunswick and Medina at all costs! - 7/2/2006
Better known as "brunstucky or brunsvirginia". This is a standing joke all over the area.
We have 7 months of snow and the rest of the months are cloudy and rainy. Very little sunshine here.
The people of the area are mainly blue collar, NASCAR type of people. Pick-ups, big camper sized SUV's and old Caddy's are pretty much the norm and Mustangs are proudly displayed at the car lots.
The police in the area have way too much time on their hands and will ticket you for going 1 mile over the speed limit. Medina Police are even worse.
We have watched the value of our home drop 100K. We basically lose about 2K a month in the value. It is just about at the price we bought it for in 1992. How's thats for an investment?
As soon as we can get out of here, we are going to head west.
I say, avoid Brunswick and avoid Medina in general. Strongsville is a much better choice and the high schools probably don't have tractor pulls like Medina does![read more...]
