Why should someone invest in Liberty Township?
I think that Liberty Township really does have a lot of potential. I think that with some work, it could be a really, really awesome place to live, work, and visit. It’s already a good place, but I think it could be better given the right funding and opportunities.
great place to live, work, play, learn, thrive
Liberty is a lovely area. The schools offer a good education, property values are excellent and very nice houses can be bought at very reasonable prices, and it’s very safe. Neighbors are friendly but not intrusive.
As more people invest and commit to Liberty, it’ll only get better and give more reason to invest and commit. Look at what committed and invested individuals and groups have done to Downtown Youngstown.
It has a lot of potential to be a great place to spend time and live.
To bring it back to how it used to be
The neighborhoods have been cleaned up a lot; property values have stabilized
Location to I-80 and business friendly, ripe for redevelopment
Business income steady from 80/11/711 corridor

Close to Everyone…but need to lower taxes.
Good place to raise a family with varied recreation activities and multiple eduction activities, wide range of social activities and diverse religious opportunities. There is growing interest in revitalization of the area,. Low initial investment compared to other parts of the country.
It has potential to become a beautiful community again. We are centrally located and have space for families and others to live, grow, play, and learn.
Geographic Location
It is Boardman without the traffic problems and over retailization.
To maintain the characteristics mentioned in previous question.
Large enough to get excellent services, small enough to be managed correctly and efficiently. Easy living with scenic neighborhoods and valued home investments.
Location, 15 minutes to 422 and 224, the “airport” and I-80 along with the history, and heritage. YCC, JCC, Logan and Stambaugh golf course.*
Because we are a family friendly community with little traffic and good people.
If the township invests in its future and manages the township resources correctly over the next ten years, property values will rise and be equivalent to neighboring communities
One drive through the Neighborhoods answers all of the above, beautiful Community and People
Potential growth.
liberty residents and leaders support community growth with pride
Our company invested in Liberty Township a few years ago with the Comfort Suites on Perni Lane (off Belmont). Truth be told, I was concerned. Hotels need to be in areas that are vibrant, developing and safe. Personally, I wasn’t convinced that is what Liberty is. I was hoping that the area around the hotel would develop more but that has been a slow process.
No income tax. Located right off Route 80.
