GREEN, OHIO... A great place to raise your kids

By
Home Inspector with H.I.S. Home Inspections (Summit, Stark Counties)

Green, Ohio is a small incorporated city, which lies about 1/2 way between Akron and Canton. It was formed as a city in 1991, out of several small hamlets, (most notably, Greensburg). It was the strong deisre to keep the Green school district separate from the City of Akron's that was the driving force behind forming the city.Green Ohio

Green had a population of  22,817 as of the 2000 census, but has grown considerably since, to well over 27,000 currently.

Green is unique in that, although a city, does not have it's own postal address zip code, but relies on 5 other communities for mailing address'es (Two Akron, one Clinton, one Uniontown, and one North Canton zip code.) Green also relies on the Summit County Sheriffs for police support, although they do have two of their own fire departments. They have a mayor's office, city council, and zoning and planning commission, which are the main governing bodies.

The city is also the home of the Akron Canton Regional Airport, which serves the cities of Akron, Canton, and much of NE Ohio, with commercial flight service.  

Green is heralded as the 16th best place in the United States to raise your children, due largely to the fine school system, and extremely low crime rate.

New businesses have recently been flocking to Green in the newly built plaza on Arlington Rd, as well as several other newly built facilities. Plans for widening several main thoroughfares are now well underway, which will hopefully relieve some of the 5 o'clock congestion as residents stream home from I-77, which runs through the heart of the city. 

With commitment to growth, and a strict zoning plan, Green is poised for even more growth and prosperity now and in the foreseeable future. Green, Ohio is a great place to live, and I am confident in our leadership and the plans they have in place for our future growth.
