Welcome to Amherst! The City of Amherst is a close-knit, residential
community offering superb safety and service departments, places of worship, top-rated schools, two Lorain County Metro Park facilities, an EMH Regional Medical Center, the Amherst Public Library and the Amherst Historical Village. We are fortunate to have supportive residents and a unique variety of businesses. It is the spirit of our community that makes Amherst the ideal place to live, work, shop and visit. Amherst is home. This sixth edition of the Amherst Magazine and Community Guide has been made possible by the generosity of sponsoring businesses and organizations. The magazine not only showcases all that Amherst has to offer, it also provides
our residents with information about our community and important business listings. I encourage you to support and thank the many businesses and organizations that are highlighted in this magazine. Their efforts and support made this publication possible. As your Mayor, I am dedicated to keeping the vision of Amherst moving forward and continuing to make our community a city to be proud of. It is an honor and a privilege to serve this community.
Mark Costilow, Mayor
