We continue to improve our economic development by offering a favorable business climate to attract a variety of commercial, retail and office developments. We have two business parks with room for expansion. Sheffield Village offers many advantages to businesses and residents due to our proximity to I-90, the Ohio Turnpike and three major state routes 254, 301 and 611. We are close to just about any type of restaurant you can name, all within minutes of a highway. Whether it is Cleveland or Sandusky – both are very convenient.


Unlike neighboring cities, we do not have any real estate taxes for operating the Village. The Village operates entirely on income taxes. We are extremely conscious of how to serve the community while taking good care of its tax dollars. We offer the lowest millage of any village or city in Lorain County. Our residents enjoy excellent Village services. We can obtain a 12-lead electric cardiogram in the field and radio contact to all local hospitals, including Cleveland Clinic, University Hospitals and Mercy Health. Our police and fire departments have the latest emergency equipment, and the service department is second to none. We are known throughout Lorain County as having the cleanest streets during the winter. This fact is clearly visible when you leave other cities and enter Sheffield Village.

Home & Real Estate Is Renting Right For you? Although owning a home is a lifelong goal of

many Americans, renting has advantages too. For some people, renting might make more sense for their financial circumstances. Below are some advantages of renting, versus buying, a home. One benefit of renting is that there are no maintenance costs or repair bills. When you rent a property, your landlord is responsible for all maintenance, improvement, and repairs. Access to expensive amenities such as an in-ground pool or a fitness center come standard at many middle-scale to upscale apartment complexes with no additional charge to tenants. One of the major benefits of renting versus owning is that renters don’t have to pay property taxes. Real estate taxes can be a hefty burden for homeowners and vary by county—in some areas the costs can be thousands of dollars annually.

The Hideaway at The Preserve

Renters generally have to pay a security deposit equal to one month’s rent, a deposit that that will theoretically be returned to them when they move out, provided they haven’t damaged the rental property vs. a hefty down payment when buying a home.

Renters can live practically anywhere, while homeowners are restricted to areas where they can afford to buy. Property values go up and down, and while this may affect homeowners in a big way, it affects renters substantially less, if at all.

Renters have the option to downsize to a more affordable living space at the end of their lease. Such flexibility is especially important for retirees who want a less costly, smaller alternative that matches their budget. Rent amounts are fixed for the span of the lease agreement, allowing you to budget more efficiently, because you know the amount of rent you are required to pay. Renter’s insurance is less costly than homeowner’s insurance and covers nearly everything owned, including furniture, computers, and valuables. Rental properties typically have a more compact and efficient floor plan, making them more affordable to heat and power than many houses. To sum this all up, owning a home can be beneficial for homeowners over the long run, due to the amount of equity they acquire in their home. Renters have nothing tangible to show for years of rental payments. However, for those who are looking to avoid the hassles of homeownership, the costs of upkeep, and property taxes, renting might be a better option. Of course, it depends on each person’s lifestyle, financial situation, and whether they’re working or in retirement.

ON THE COVER The groundbreaking for a new

Veterans Affairs Outpatient Clinic was held December 9, 2019 in Sheffield Village, Ohio. Carnegie Management had renovated an existing building that was being used by the VA as an interim healthcare clinic in Sheffield Village since 2016. In order to accommodate the VA’s need for a new facility, Carnegie purchased two additional buildings, which were demolished to make


way for the new clinic. Demolition began in January 2020 and construction for the new clinic started in March of 2020. “We, at Carnegie Management, were proud to provide local veterans an interim healthcare facility,” said Dr. Rustom Khouri, president of Carnegie Management and Development Corporation. “And now, to continue to provide them with a permanent comprehensive healthcare facility for years to come is truly an honor,” Dr. Khouri continued.

Sheffield Village Magazine & Community Guide | 2021-2022

The 26,000 square foot clinic will provide primary care, mental health, women’s health, physical therapy, podiatry, radiology and other specialty services to the 7,600 veterans of Lorain County and neighboring northeastern Ohio cities. The clinic is scheduled to open in 2021. Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur, Sheffield Village Mayor John Hunter, Lorain County Commissioner Matt Lundy and Jill Dietrich, Director and CEO of the VA Northeast Ohio Healthcare System, attended the groundbreaking ceremony.
