A Message from Mayor Frank G. Jackson

Cleveland is a great city. Through the years, we have built world-renowned institutions including our orchestra and our museums. We support nationally recognized sports teams. Our medical and research facilities have created a health care capital in Cleveland and our colleges and universities attract researchers and students from around the world.


Beyond the big institutions, there are amenities that make Cleveland great. With miles of park trails, the shores of Lake Erie and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Cleveland is a destination for big business and travelers alike.

Cleveland is a great City because of the people who call it home. With more than 77 different cultural groups, our neighborhoods are populated by families who have lived here for more than a century and people who emigrated here this year. Our diversity is on display in our many ethnic restaurants, markets, festivals, and cultural gardens.


Cleveland is a strong town with strong people – people who have supported its great past and are working towards an even greater future. Join me in building the Cleveland of tomorrow.
