Welcome from the Mayor



(513) 827.7047

On behalf of my fellow council members and city staff, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the City of Milford. Described by many as modern day “Mayberry”, Milford’s rich history along with his position on the Little Miami River makes it a truly special community that its citizens and business owners take great pride in.

Milford has a lot to offer for those who choose to live here, open a business or simply plan on visiting. We have a vibrant and growing business community. From Main Street to Rivers Edge you will find many shops and restaurants to explore and enjoy. From fine neighborhoods, old and new, including our new luxury apartments on the river, RiverWalk, there is a place for everyone to call home in Milford.

Milford’s many parks, both around the city and along the river, exemplify the excellent quality of life we have in Milford. Coupled with our great parks, our access to the Little Miami Bike Trail provides ample recreational activities to our residents and visitors.  In addition, annual events like Frontier Days and Art Affaire provide unique opportunities for people to enjoy our city. These are just some of the amenities that attract residents, businesses and visitors.

What I love most about Milford are its people.  From the residents who take pride in their city to the business owner serving you lunch; it’s hard to find a community with so much hospitality.

If you are already a part of our community, thank you. If you are considering relocating your home or business to Milford – or simply thinking about a visit – please do. You will not be disappointed.

I look forward to seeing you around town.

Laurie Howland
