Lake County, Ohio


    Welcome to Lake County, Ohio Web Site

       Welcome to the Lake County, Ohio website. Our site is currently being redesigned to better serve our community. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

      Although we are geographically the smallest of Ohio's 88 Counties, we currently rank 11th in population with more than 236,000 citizens, and we continue to be among Ohio's fastest growing!


        Our work force is highly skilled, and we put a premium on education and training. Teachers in Lake County average the highest wages in the state, and we have the lowest percentage of population living below the poverty line.

        The most unique feature about us is the 31 miles of shoreline we have on Lake Erie. There are two major rivers flowing through the County which provide us with harbors and marinas for shipping and superb recreational opportunities.

        A number of large national and regional companies call Lake County home and have their headquarters here. International business is also significant because of our access to the St. Lawrence Seaway and Hopkins International Airport (in Cleveland). A manufacturer would be hard-pressed to find a better location for export business.

        Lake County's reputation in agricultural circles is legendary. Blessed with some of the most fertile soil anywhere, our Nursery Industry is a national leader. Our well-established Wine Industry is nationally known because of our ideal soil and climate for grape production.

        Our Lake County location also puts you within 20 miles of world-class business, educational, cultural and recreational activities in the greater Cleveland area.

        This Website will provide you with an overview of Lake County Government, but will not serve as a substitute for a visit here. Come and see first hand the many benefits we have to offer your business and your family.

    Welcome to Lake County!
