Reynoldsburg is a great place to live if you want substandard amenities, low property value, and a plethora of rental properties. On the upside, it has lower taxes and complacent residents.

While surrounding communities made positive strides over the past 20-plus years, Reynoldsburg decided to stay at status quo by accommodating a select group of residents, and can't even offer a community pool or recreation center this summer to prospective home-buyers.

The now-closed privately owned Swim Club charged outrageous memberships every season, yet residents were content with below-average accommodations because they were not willing to pass any type of tax increase or demand accountability from city leaders.

For residents who plan to travel to surrounding communities for summer fun in the sun, I wonder if they will notice what other communities have to offer and decide to move, or will they continue to stay at status quo?
