30-year resident. City is fairly safe, and downtown has entered a period of significant growth. Downtown and most retail/commercial areas are safe during both daylight and nighttime. Some neighborhoods, though, are rather unsafe to be alone walking around. Most violent crime revolves around drug trade and gang/youth beefs (plus the usual domestic violence). This is a blue collar town that relied too long on manufacturing, so it has Rust Belt-related employment challenges. Great art museum, lots to see and do downtown, but North End (Lagrange corridor) near South End, and East Toledo are probably the roughest neighborhoods. Far west side, far south side, and Old West End are some of the nicest/safest areas.

Public schools could use improvement, but that's true for most larger cities in the region. The taxes are somewhat high in relation to quality of public services provided, but again: that Rust Belt legacy is a multi-decade problem. The city has been doing better job repairing roads n the past few years, but they fell far behind during the 2008 recession because they spent road money to balance the budget. For a couple of years the city did not do much more than fill crater-sized potholes, and now we are seeing the results of that lack of regular schedule of repaving.
