Mayor Blackwell of Maple Heights and Mayor Kolograf of Walton Hills along with other elected officials cut ribbon on July 30, 2021.

Mayor Annette Blackwell, Walton Hills Mayor Don Kolograf, County Executive Armond Budish, and other local and state elected officials cut the ribbon on the Dunham Road Reconstruction Project in 2021.

The City of Maple Heights is rich in educational, cultural and religious traditions. Maple Heights is an ideal community where residents enjoy the friendliness and concern typical of small-town living, yet experience conveniences usually found in larger metropolitan cities.

The city has faced several challenges in the past decade. However, I, City Council members, and our dedicated safety services and employees have taken great pride in maintaining and revitalizing our community as we move Maple Heights ahead.

Our city is growing. The 2020 Census counted a population of 23,701 and the 2010 Census recorded a population of 23,138. The increase in population between 2010 and 2020 is the first increase since 1970. In Cuyahoga County real estate values went up all over the county. However, properties classed as residential in Maple Heights saw a 29% increase in value, commercial a 6% increase, and industrial a 10% increase. The 29% increase in value for residential property was the highest increase in the entire county. Also quite significant, over $12.7M in commercial and residential investment in was made in 2021. I encourage you to come visit Maple Heights and see hospitality, the development, and all the things that make us “A Winning City”.

Please check our website regularly for more updates and some exciting announcements!
