Economic & Community Development

The City of Avon is privileged to introduce to you a community that is the best place to live and work in Northeastern Ohio.

Rich in history and blessed with outstanding resources for education and recreation, and possessed of a dynamic economic environment and workforce, Avon is an ideal home for any family or business.

What was once a little farming community established in 1814, Avon has blossomed into a city for people who want it all. Still boasting a “small town feel” with quiet neighborhoods, there is an abundance of shopping options, health care facilities, and small industrial areas.

Strategically located along Interstate 90 and only twenty minutes from Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, the second largest theatre district in the country, national sports teams, one of the preeminent orchestras in the world, some of the finest museums and dining experiences found anywhere in the country, and less than ten minutes from Lake Erie, our city is truly the best place for doing business and providing a high quality of life for its residents.

Our safety services are first class, with an exceptional ability to protect people and businesses from serious fire damage (Class 2 ISO rating), and a police department that stresses community involvement and proactive, positive partnerships with the people and businesses they serve.

The Avon City Schools earned an “A” on the Ohio Department of Education’s state report card several years in a row. Known for its excellent academic, music, and athletic programs, the educational opportunities are endless.
