Cleveland Magazine may not have ranked Cleveland Heights as one of its top 20 cities in the annual “Rating the Suburbs” issue, but the community did top the charts in some categories.
Cleveland Heights provides the most services of any of the 77 suburbs ranked in the list at 15. And the city is one of 11 where 100 percent of the streets have sidewalks, according to the magazine.
Police are also plentiful in the city. Cleveland Heights has more officers than any other suburb on the list at 109. The second highest was Parma at 99.
Cleveland Heights also secured a top spot in another area — property taxes. The city was ranked No. 3 behind Shaker Heights and University Heights, which landed first and second place respectively. Residents pay $3,320 per every $100,000 in valuation in Cleveland Heights.
But Cleveland Heights was not one of the best suburbs in the two major categories that Cleveland Magazine uses to rank the suburbs — education and safety. The city of about 46,000 rated No. 48 out of 57 in education and No. 63 out of 77 in safety.
