Message from the Mayor
On behalf of the members of City Council and staff of the City of Northwood, I welcome you to our website!
Location, location, location…
The City of Northwood is located in Northern Wood County, and shares boarders with Lucas, and Ottawa County. Within those counties are Toledo, Oregon, Rossford, Lake Township, Perrysburg Township and Allen Township, all of which surround Northwood. Major highways intersect the city making travel plans convenient. Interstate 75 connects with Detroit to the North, and Dayton/Cincinnati to the South. Both major interstates link to the Ohio turn pike. Woodville Road (State route 51) runs northwest to southeast and passes through numerous cities along the way. If traveling by road doesn't sound appealing Toledo Express Airport and Detroit Metro Airport can be accessed by the interstates and turnpike as well. The City is served by Norfolk & Southern, CSX Railroad, and Port of Toledo. Northwood is a great spot to reside due to the diverse living environment. The city offers a small town feel with the opportunity for big city adventures just a few short miles away.
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.
