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.
