Welcome to the City of Cuyahoga Falls! It is with great pleasure that I give you a brief overview of the city. Cuyahoga Falls is definitely a city on the move.

With approximately 50,000 residents and over 1,200 businesses, the city offers many amenities, including our wonderful parks and recreation facilities, our low utility rates, diverse housing, excellent schools, first-rate safety forces and city services, and a vision for the future.

Cuyahoga Falls is rich in history, from its start in 1812 to the present. In 1986, the City of Cuyahoga Falls tripled in size due to the merger of the city and Northampton Township. We were the first two communities to successfully merge by voter approval — thus making State of Ohio history. The residents of both communities had a vision for a greater tomorrow. This merger has allowed our city to grow by expanding our housing diversity and providing industrial space for businesses to grow and relocate.

We are very proud of our public school systems, Cuyahoga Falls and Woodridge. We also offer many private and parochial school choices. All of our school administrators and teachers strive for academic excellence to make our students, who are our future, the very best they can be.

Recreational opportunities are almost endless in Cuyahoga Falls. We offer 27 neighborhood parks and recreational facilities and have 4,800 acres of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park in our city. Our City Council approved the new $26 million recreation complex that is under construction. Our Waterworks Family Aquatic Center provides everlasting summer fun. The Brookledge Golf Course and Academy have a golf pro offering P.G.A. lessons on staff. The Downview Sports Center is a focal point for entertainment and hobbies with a new miniature golf course, batting cages, driving range and new skate park.

In the heart of our downtown, along the Cuyahoga River, will be Falls River Square, a community-gathering plaza. Falls River Square will provide a covered stage, an amphitheater with fixed seating for 295, an interactive water feature and a year-round pavilion. The project is expected to be complete in late Summer 2003.

Cuyahoga Falls is truly a place we call home, and we hope you will, too.


Sincerely,

Don L. Robart
Mayor
