Welcome to Maple Heights

The City of Maple Heights is rich in educational, cultural and religious traditions. An inner-ring suburb, Maple Heights is a community where residents enjoy the friendliness and concern typical of small-town living; yet experience conveniences usually only found in larger metropolitan cities.

Under my leadership, the City of Maple Heights has emerged as an opportune laden 21st Century City, with numerous initiatives in place to bolster public health and safety, generational financial achievement, unity across our business community, and ongoing physical infrastructure enhancements designed to improve quality of life for long term residents, visitors and newcomers alike.  In collaboration with Maple Heights City Council, my administration exists to establish a strong, forward looking civic foundation for the Maple Heights community as we chart our collective future.

In October 2022 the City of Maple Heights received the State of Ohio Auditor’s most prestigious award, the Clean Audit Award. Only the top 10% of organizations receive this honor and with more than 6,000 audits performed, the city was recognized as being one of the State of Ohio’s most responsible partners.

Our city is growing. The 2020 Census counted a population of 23,701; population has grown close to approximately 0.25% every year since 2010 and our residents are young people, the median age is 42 years old. Therefore, our future must include good amenities which are all the conveniences of urban living, open and public spaces, great citywide connectivity/broadband, more diverse modes of transportation and cleaner air.

In Cuyahoga County real estate values went up all over the county. However, residential properties in Maple Heights saw a 29% increase in value. This increase in value for these properties was the highest increase in the entire county. Also quite significant, in 2021, over $12.7M in both commercial and residential investment was completed.

Maple Heights is still viewed for first-time homeowners as a city of opportunity. Our housing stock was rated a “B” in a housing survey and it is affordable, access is easy as we border several highways, we are minutes away from two major hospital health systems, we have neighborhood schools, a diverse number of churches and places of worship, and good local employers including some national companies.

Maple Heights City Hall does not perform marriage ceremonies, but is a part of the Garfield Heights Municipal Courts, which also serves Maple Heights. Garfield Heights Municipal Court is considered a “satellite” court to the county, so you no longer need to go downtown to obtain your license. Please go to the Garfield Heights Municipal Court’s Wedding webpage for additional information on obtaining a license or having a judge perform your ceremony.
