Welcome to Westerville, a community known for progressive amenities paired with an unwavering commitment to economic support, growth and partnerships. Those who already call Westerville home will tell you that this community is among the best in the nation. And Money magazine agrees, having twice recognized Westerville as one of America’s “Best Places to Live.”
Westerville is ideally suited for commerce, conveniently located within a 30-minute drive to every major metropolitan area in the Columbus Region, with four convenient access points to the Westerville community, including Polaris Parkway, Cleveland Avenue, South State Street/S.R. 3 and Sunbury Road. The Columbus Outerbelt, just south of Westerville, connects to north/south Interstate 71, north/south State Route 315 and east/west Interstate 70. Port Columbus International Airport, just 10 miles away, is served by 15 airlines and their regional affiliates, offering more than 150 daily non-stop flights to 34 destinations. Not much further away, Rickenbacker International Airport offers first-class cargo transportation to destinations across the globe.
The City of Westerville is the only Central Ohio suburb to own and operate its own electric and water utilities. This means lower rates and faster response times for Westerville businesses and residents, in addition to a customer service philosophy that is second to none.
Throughout Westerville, residents enjoy more than 40 community parks and open spaces, a state-of-the-art Community Center, an award-winning school district and the old-generation Uptown District featuring new-generation dining, shopping and entertainment.
Meanwhile, nearby universities and training institutions constitute an extensive employment and educational resource for area businesses, including The Ohio State University, Capital University, Franklin University, Ohio Dominican College, Ohio Weslyan University, Columbus State Community College, DeVry Institute of Technology and our own Otterbein University.
