Welcome to Maple Heights

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

Maple Heights has faced several challenges in the past decade. However; I, City Council members, and our dedicated safety services and city employees have taken great pride in maintaining and revitalizing our community engaging and welcoming dialogue with our stakeholders, focusing on delivering excellent city services, ensuring the city government is proactive and responsive, all while supporting a financially stable city government as we move Maple Heights ahead into this next decade and beyond.

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, in 2021, over $12.7M in both commercial and residential investment in was completed. I encourage you to come visit Maple Heights and see hospitality, the development, the pride, and all the things that make us “A Winning City”.

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.
