City Manager's Office
It is my pleasure as Huron’s City Manager to welcome you to our picturesque Lake Erie community.
Our city is located in Erie County in what was historically known as the Firelands region of the Connecticut Western Reserve. During the American Revolutionary War, hundreds of New England residents were displaced from their homes when British forces set entire towns ablaze. Several years after the end of the war, many relocated to the Western Reserve, and they are remembered in Huron in the form of several streets’ names, as well as the Bowling Green State University Firelands Campus.
Today, the City of Huron has evolved into a full service community and offers superior recreational, business, residential and educational opportunities. Whether you are a resident, business or visitor, the city has a positive experience waiting for you!
For residents, the city offers access to excellent public safety forces and street and water services. Our location on the lake creates a natural environment for recreation, and the city’s commitment to enhancing the community’s quality of life has produced several beautifully landscaped parks, a public boat basin, groomed beaches and a host of progressive recreational programs and activities.
The Huron City School system offers its students a comprehensive curriculum at the elementary, middle and high school levels and supplements this learning experience with a superior athletics program. The Firelands Campus of the Bowling Green State University offers the community access to higher education and programming. Additionally, the city’s modern library allows students from all levels a quiet place to research and reflect.
The city’s location at the midpoint of Cleveland and Toledo along the Route 2 corridor allows businesses access to two metropolitan markets. In addition to Route 2, Huron is only minutes away from the Ohio Turnpike and provides access to the Great Lake shipping lanes from the Huron River, complementing its access to the major railway between New York and Chicago. The city’s corporate park offers entrepreneurs a great location to conduct business and affordable property for future growth.
No matter what brings you to Huron, I look forward to seeing you in the community soon.
