What area of Springfield are you moving to (road name)? There are some decent areas like most towns. Outskirts are the best but usually the most expensive.

Northridge is still pretty decent. Yes, the town has changed and the inner section has gotten pretty bad. The closest we moved towards Springfield was South Vienna (work in Columbus but didn't want to live there either). You should be fine in Northridge. I'm not going to say it's perfect because no place is, but they've kept it pretty nice & safe there.

Just be cautious as to where you run your errands, don't leave anything in the car or keep it running, just the general stuff to keep yourself safe. I've lived near Springfield for about 8yrs now and haven't had any problems yet, but some people do. You learn the areas to avoid and the places not to eat. Definitely recommend staying away from the downtown area.
