Tell us what you love about your community — or what you hate about Rating the Suburbs.

I love the convenience of Lakewood having all the amenities I need at my fingertips

I love living in South Parma. It's very convenient to everything, and a safe environment with good schools and friendly neighbors. For an older and very large community, Parma still has a lot to offer and gets little or no credit on your "rate the suburbs" list.

Wickliffe is a very clean, extremely friendly city with excellent city services and solid well-maintained housing stock complimented by several "mom and pop" businesses. BUT as always, the magazine favors the cities devoid of charm, gridlocked with one-way in/out mini-mansion developments and with chain restaurants and stores ...cookie-cutter...GENERIC, USA.
Understanding that schools factor heavy into your scoring, older neighborhoods ( with older populations that don't fund schools as heavily) with far more charm, friendlier people and more civic pride usually get overlooked.
Your assessment has a strong bias to what a well-to-do family with 3 or so school age children (too busy to be involved in the community) wants.
What about the rest of us?

We live in University Heights and love the friendly neighbors, walkablee neighborhoods, easy access to anything we need, and the charm of an older home updated for today's family needs.

Someone we know is moving to greater Cleveland from another vibrant city. We are giving them this guide. With the suburbs' across the board ratings, combined with actual reporters' insights, a full picture of the area should be realized by the newcomers. Hopefully, they will be able to pick a community and decide on their own that there is a lot of activities to choose from for a family.

Your ratings are terribly biased against the inner-ring suburbs.
