FROM THE HEART: The community of Sheffield Village is what makes it special. (L to R): The annual Arts Festival at French Creek Nature & Arts Center is always fun, rain or shine; Opening of the VA Outpatient Clinic; 5K runner & friend at the Arts Festival.

Welcome to Sheffield Village Home is where the heart is – and Sheffield Village

is the heart of Lorain County! With over 13.50 square miles, our Village contains many wonderful amenities such as a first-class school system, top-notch safety forces and service department and exceptional parks for recreation.

Sheffield Village retains a neighborly Village atmosphere while offering the conveniences of a city. Our businessfriendly climate and progressive and innovative attitude, along with active North Coast and Lorain County Chambers of Commerce, fully supports local business. We are excited to have 286 successful, hometown and global business institutions call the Village home. Sheffield Village is one of the area’s most forward-thinking, proactive and fiscally-responsible communities, which is constantly demonstrated by an increase in cost-control measures without diminishing any Village services. In 2016, Crain’s Cleveland Business recognized us as the third most affluent suburb in Lorain County behind Avon Lake and Avon.

We are home to Ohio Business College and Lorain County Community College. We have hundreds of acres of parkland, 4.5 miles of natural and designed walking trails, baseball, football and soccer fields, picnic areas, shelters and playgrounds to enrich the lives of our residents and their families. By personally going out and discovering what we have in the Village, you help to keep our community vibrant and growing, making it a great place for living, raising a family, working and playing.
