Message from the Mayor


E. Schimmel Jan 14, 2016 

 Mayor's Welcome

On behalf of the members of City Council and staff of the City of Northwood, I welcome you to our website.

 Location, location, location…

Located in Northern Wood County, Northwood is bounded by the Cities of Toledo, Oregon, and Rossford.  The Townships of Lake, Perrysburg, and Allan share boarders with Northwood, as do Lucas and Ottawa Counties.  Three major highways intersect the City; Interstates 75 and 280 run north and south while State Route 51 (Woodville Road) runs generally northwest to southeast. I-280 connects with I-80 (Ohio Turnpike) six miles south of the City, while I-75 connects with Detroit to the north and Dayton/Cincinnati to the south.  Detroit Metro Airport is 48 miles north via I-75 and I-275 and Toledo Express Airport is twenty miles to the west via I-80. The City is also served by the Norfolk & Southern and CSX Railroads and the Port of Toledo.

With abundant open space, low taxes and plenty of economic development incentives, Northwood is truly the City “where opportunity abounds”.

This website is designed to help keep you informed about our community, up to date with current events, and advise you of what Northwood can do to help you be successful in our community.  Responsive government is our commitment to you.
