Welcome from the Mayor

On behalf of my fellow members of Kettering City Council and all
of our dedicated City administrators, welcome to Kettering, Ohio!
Kettering is home to welcoming neighborhoods, thriving
businesses, exceptional city services, everyday heroes, volunteer spirit, beautiful parks, summer’s best music, excellent schools and treasured community traditions.

What makes Kettering unique is our high quality of living for
residents in every life stage. Whether you are a student, a young
couple, a family raising children or empty nesters, Kettering offers housing and recreational opportunities that are unmatched in the region. I can confidently say that you will not find a network of comprehensive services and amenities as diverse and
impressive as ours – anywhere.

We are particularly proud of our Kettering Police and Fire for the exceptional public safety they provide along with their partnerships with the community through prevention programs
and positive service initiatives. Our charming neighborhoods offer a sense of old-fashioned community. Each year we welcome new companies and celebrate expansions for existing
businesses as a result of our strong workforce and our economic development efforts. Kettering is known nationwide for its award winning parks and recreation services.

Citizen engagement, meaningful dialogue and active participation in leadership of our community are essential. I can assure you that I, along with my fellow members of City Council,
truly enjoy hearing from the residents we represent. We encourage you to join us for a City Council meeting on the second and fourth Tuesday of every month at 7:30 p.m.
Kettering is a community unlike any other. We offer an exceptional level of city amenities and a quality of life enhanced by our senior services, beautiful parks, public art, recreation facilities and great outdoor music.

People locate here, stay here and return here because of the range of world class amenities and services that make Kettering a place our residents love to call home. If you have questions or concerns, give us a call or reach out with an email. After all, we are here to serve you.


Peggy Lehner, Mayor
