Columbus Area Bucks - Help!

Discussion in 'Open Discussion (Work-safe)' started by BuckBackHome, Feb 22, 2005.

    I am looking at a couple of job opportunities in the Columbus area and am hoping to get some insight from those of you who still live around Columbus. The two areas specifically are New Albany and Groveport.

    If you have any knowledge of these communities feel free to post it here or PM me. I am looking for information on schools, quality of life, etc...

    New Albany is FAR nicer. It has an extremely strong school district. But of course, with that comes more $$$...taxes, utilities, etc.

    Groveport has the worst schools in Columbus and have been on split session for about three years. Houses are cheap but good luck re-selling them.

    New Albany is awesome but REALLY expensive to live in. Taxes will break you there.

    You have a choice between two extremes here.

    If you have high-school aged sons, I would suggest (after today) that you enroll them in Gahanna Jefferson High School. :wink:

    If the schools are an issue for you, here's a tip if you choose New Albany. A lot of the new developments going in are named "Albany" something, but many are not in the school district. Make sure you double check before you choose a place.

    New Albany is very nice.

    I live on the northwest corner in the Dublin/Columbus/Worthington vicinity (have a Columbus address, but live in Dublin school district), and there are some nice areas around here that are very economical.

    It seems that your farthest suburbs with access to 270 are a good bet.

    Powell isn't a bad place either.

    However, it has took a turn for the worse now that I live there. All in all though, it's pretty nice.
     
  11. if your working in new albany maybe try westerville area, its cheaper but still nice.

    for the groveport id say maybe hillard-though there taxes are going up pretty fast though.

    Some other respectable places would have to be Upper Arlinton, and another vote for Hilliard with two new high schools, one less than four years old and state of the art tech. and one more high school to be built in three years or so.

    Groveport and Hilliard are on completely opposite sides of town. It would take him forever to get to work in the mornings and even longer to get home at night. If he were to get the job in GP I would suggest Canal Winchester as a good quiet place to live

    If Groveport is where he works, Canal Winchester is a good area.

    I live in Carroll, but am in Canal Winchester schools and that is a nice quiet area as well. Only about 10-12 mins. to Groveport.

    Thump,

    "I live in Carroll, but am in Canal Winchester schools..."

    Are you officially moving after the school year?
