Selecting a large shade tree
Call your city arborist. He/she will probably have good recommendations to meet your criteria. Most cities like to see tree diversity as well. Ask a real nursery what will do well where you are as well. Your library may have guides too. At the risk of generalizing, fast growing trees tend to have aggressive and potentially invasive roots. You can help by deep watering and forcing the roots to grow deeper.
When I lived in Cincinnati I remember some nasty ice storms I have never encountered elsewhere. I assume the same happen where you are.
