Greetings to all residents and those planning to visit or settle in the great City of Huber Heights.
The City of Huber Heights prides itself in providing top quality services to its citizens. The Division of Fire is one of the highest-rated firefighting forces in Ohio, with a Class 2 rating from the Insurance Services Offices of America (ISO). The Division of Police is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA). The remodeled Communications Center provides our community with state-of-the-art emergency dispatch capability. The City's Finance Department has received the State of Ohio Auditor's Award for 20 consecutive years for excellence in financial reporting. Our franchise agreements with United Water and Republic Services provide residents with water and sewer services and trash collection services at some of the lowest costs in the Miami Valley.
The City uses a number of methods to communicate with residents. City residents can sign up for an emergency notification system called CodeRED. Quarterly City newsletters are now delivered with your water bill and can also be found here on this website. There are also three Facebook pages created to help pass along information: Huber Heights City Hall, Huber Heights Police, and Huber Heights Fire Division.
The City also maintains this website with lots of current and valuable information. Prior to becoming Mayor, I found that reading the Administration Committee and Public Works Committee agenda items to be one of the best ways to learn about the direction that the City Council is steering the City. These are revealed by visiting the AgendaQuick Database of Agendas, Packets, Minutes and Audio/Video page. If you get into this habit, not only will you learn more about where the City is going, it also gives you the opportunity to offer educated input to me and the City Council early enough to help guide our decisions.
Visitors - Come Grow With Us
To those from outside the City of Huber Heights, I am writing to extend my personal invitation to you on behalf of Huber Heights to "Come Grow With Us!"
Located just minutes from Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and Dayton's commercial center, Huber Heights is home to over 800 businesses, from high-tech manufacturers to distributors. The close proximity of Dayton International Airport and the I-75/I-70 "Crossroads of the Nation" interchange offer ease of access to the over 600 acres of prime land in the City's business park and the approximately 500 acres of high-traffic retail locations offering our residents and visitors great dining, shopping, and entertainment options. Our commercial and manufacturing clusters are strategically located to all three of our interchanges on Interstate 70. In addition to the benefits of location, our workforce is highly skilled and well-educated; and City leaders are committed to ensuring the availability of resources and quality City services and support.
Huber Heights Schools achieve excellence in education through a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) curriculum and, thanks to community support, recently opened seven new schools. The Sinclair Community College "Fast-Track Learning Center" in Huber Heights and 25 other area colleges and universities provide numerous opportunities for starting or continuing a higher education.
Quality homes and friendly neighborhoods help to maintain property values in the City. Carriage Trails and other residential developments include unique residential sites surrounded by nature and conveniently located near everything one could imagine. Our full-service YMCA, extensive community parks, two MetroParks, and a vast array of sports fields provide every enthusiast with a place to play.
Huber Heights is a vibrant and exciting community that welcomes new residents, new businesses, and visitors. When you discover Huber Heights, you will encounter a progressive, yet traditional citizenry, working together to improve the quality of life for everyone who works, lives, or plays in this community. We truly want you to "Come Grow With Us!"
Tom McMasters, Mayor of the City of Huber Heights
