On March 15, the City of Middletown was recognized by Ohio Business magazine with an Ohio Success award during a ceremony at the Statehouse in Columbus. The inaugural Ohio Success Awards honors growth companies, nonprofits and governmental organizations across the state of Ohio. In particular, these awards recognize governmental organizations that have created unique value or opportunities based upon their ingenuity, partnership and perseverance. City Manager Doug Adkins accepted the award.

The City of Middletown has a long and rich history in southwest Ohio with strong ties to manufacturing, higher education, medical arts and aviation. With a population of just under 50,000, Middletown is home to a revitalized historic downtown with unique shopping and dining experiences, a municipal airport with the longest uncontrolled runway within 500 miles and a community that enjoy diverse cultures, historic neighborhoods, a community theater and local artists. While the city celebrates its past, it also is investing in its future. Middletown City Schools recently completed $96 million in new construction projects, creating a state-of-the-art high school and a new middle school. Workforce development is a top priority within Middletown, with two regional college campuses and a vocational school within our municipal borders. Recent economic development projects throughout the city showcase growth in business and job opportunity, from downtown micro enterprise startups to AK Steel’s Research and Innovation Center.
