Monroeville Economic Development Opportunities Report January 2023
Welcome to the Village of Monroeville, Ohio, where our outstanding location and quality of life offers what could be the ideal location for your next business expansion or relocation.
Location, Location, Location!
Located on the banks of the Huron River, in northwest Huron County, Ohio, Monroeville is only eight (8) miles south of the Ohio Turnpike (I-90) and is in close proximity to U.S. Route 20 (east-west) and U.S. Routes 4 and 250 (north-south). Our prime location provides convenient access and quick commutes to cities throughout the area, as well as adjacent states. Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CLE) is less than an hour from the Village and destinations such as Milwaukee, WI; Syracuse, NY; and Harrisburg, PA; can all be driven in less than 7 hours.
Monroeville offers a peaceful, friendly, rural lifestyle, yet its proximity provides the benefits of the exciting renaissance, redevelopment and revitalization of the Northeast Ohio Region’s four-plus major metropolitan areas (Cleveland, Akron, Canton and Youngstown), creating the 15th largest market in the United States. The region is represented by Team Northeast Ohio (Team NEO), one of Ohio’s most dynamic and innovative economic development partnerships representing the eighteen (18) counties that comprise Northeast Ohio and includes:
- A workforce of more than 2 million and is home to 40% of Ohio’s Fortune 1000 companies (the most Fortune 1000 companies of any region in Ohio)
- More than 200 global companies
- Approximately 800 world business headquarters
Northeast Ohio’s central location reaches the largest number of consumers in a 250-mile/400-km radius compared with any other metro market in the U.S.
Monroeville is an important part of a county where agriculture and manufacturing are the leading industries – with more than 865 farms, nearly 240,000 acres of farmland, and thriving industries including food manufacturing, construction, healthcare, and retail. The Village is a “way point” on the North Coast Inland Trail, which stretches from Lorain to Toledo and has recently been designated as U.S. Bike Route 30.

Competitive utility service and real estate cost makes industrial development in this area a high-value proposition. We operate our own municipal utilities – water, wastewater, and electric distribution, an advantage to our residents and businesses because they are governed locally, and when there is need for assistance, we are your neighbor – willing to assist you quickly. We work with American Municipal Power (AMP) and fellow communities to obtain electricity at the best rate possible. We, then, provide and maintain the distribution lines locally. In addition, it is anticipated that fiber optic internet will be coming to the Village in 2023!
The Village has proven to be a successful mix for many and is open for businesses and people looking for that special right location for them.
Why not check us out? Just give us a call or stop by. We’ll be glad to show you around so you can see all that Monroeville has to offer.
