The City of Maumee has been named by Ohio Magazine as Ohio's Best Hometown. A selection committee recognized four Ohio communities as its 2016-2017 Best Hometown's in the State of Ohio. The criteria used are: community spirit, education, entertainment, health and safety, business environment, and culture and heritage. Maumee has been recognized as a place "that reflects the values that make our state a great place to live." Maumee will be featured as a Best Hometown in the November issue of Ohio Magazine, and several assets of our community along with businesses in our community will be featured in articles during the next twelve months. The many attributes of our city that we were told greatly impressed the committee are the Sunshine Art Studio; a cooperative effort of Maumee's government / a private business owner / and a nonprofit agency that provides opportunities for adults with challenges, the Maumee Police Division Senior Outreach program protecting the elderly in our community, the new walking path at Side Cut Metropark constructed by the city, and our community's commitment to preserving its history.
This is a great honor that reflects on the cooperation of our city employees, schools, business community, civic organizations and residents which makes Maumee such a great place in which to live and work.
Ohio Magazine will be in Maumee in November to recognize our community at a brief ceremony open to all to attend. Details will be forthcoming.

In our Arrowhead Park business district you will find beautiful landscaping with mounding and plenty of trees together with buildings set back allowing nature to flourish.
You will also find well maintained streets with an abundance of trees along them, not only in our business districts, but in our residential neighborhoods as well.
