City of North Ridgeville

Mayor's Message

Mayor Kevin Corcoran
We are gearing up for a busy summer! In addition to our sports programs, fitness classes and other recreation activities, North Ridgeville Parks and Recreation and our partners have a great line up of family-friendly events planned for this season. Here are a few highlights of what’s in store:

Always a hit with kids of all ages, Touch-A-Truck will be June 3 at Shady Drive Complex from 10 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Our Summer Concert Series will bring live music to South Central Park Gazebo four Sundays this summer: June 11, June 25, July 2 and August 6. Don’t forget to bring your lawn chair or blanket!

Celebrate Independence Day at Freedom Festival and Fireworks at Victory Park on July 3. Tickets
are available at and proceeds benefit three wonderful nonprofit organizations including North Ridgeville Community Care, Canine Superheroes Foundation and Save 22.

And the biggest event in town will be our annual North Ridgeville Corn Festival from August 11-13. Enjoy live entertainment, kids’ games, corn-eating contest, grand parade and more at this summer classic!

The City and our partner agencies are also busy at work on numerous road and infrastructure improvement projects this summer. Around town, you’ll see many projects underway including road resurfacing, bridge replacement and our new police station taking shape, in addition to the new commercial construction projects in progress. Read more about these projects in this edition of Community Connection. Finally, our Ridgeville Ready master plan process continues with our second round of public engagement scheduled for this summer. Details of these opportunities will be provided at and in all of our news outlets.

Stay informed about our projects and initiatives in the city by visiting our website at and by following our city on social media. Keep an eye out for my weekly videos reporting the latest and greatest city news. Also, I invite you to stop by City Hall for one of my monthly Coffee and Conversations where I provide project updates and answer your questions.

I was able to join the Culver’s team and other local representatives at a recent groundbreaking ceremony for their newest location at 32574 Lorain Road. We look forward to welcoming another new restaurant to town later this year! I hope you have the opportunity to get outside, support new businesses, explore our local parks, connect with friends and neighbors and enjoy summer in our city!
If you have any questions or concerns, please call my office at (440) 353-0811.
