Brunello Staff Directory Photo website 2022A Message From the Mayor

As mayor of the City of Highland Heights, I invite you to discover and enjoy the unique characteristics that make our city stand out locally and nationally as “The City with Pride and Promise.”

In my eyes, our city has always been, and remains as, the best place to live in America. By keeping the needs of our residents and businesses a priority, and by making good decisions for today and tomorrow, our community has a promising future. We pride ourselves with a city government that is truly for the people, working together to maintain the serenity, safety, and beauty of the community.

I believe that the City of Highland Heights comprises a perfect balance of neighborhoods, green space, and businesses, with easy access to downtown Cleveland and other regional amenities. This balance distinguishes the City of Highland Heights as a convenient, close-knit, and safe community to work, reside, raise children and make lasting memories.

We are proud to offer the residents and businesses of Highland Heights quality safety services and an outstanding school system. Since 2010, our Police Department has been nationally recognized by the Commission on Accreditation of Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA). To receive this honor, the department must successfully meet and maintain high professional standards identified in life, health, and safety. The City of Highland Heights is a part of the Mayfield School District. This outstanding public school system has been consistently ranked on the AP Honor Roll by the College Board, as one of America's Most Challenging High Schools by the Washington Post and as one of America's Best High Schools by U.S. News and World Report. In addition, the Mayfield School System has been consistently ranked as Excellent and Excellent with Distinction by the Ohio Department of Education.

I invite you to explore this website for additional information about our community and the services that we offer. Or better yet, take a drive through our city, visit one of our many local businesses, or attend one of our local community events and decide for yourself that the City of Highland Heights is truly “The City with Pride and Promise.”
