    Welcome to Lake County, Ohio

    Established on March 6, 1840, Lake County encompasses only 228.2 square miles of land, geographically the smallest county in Ohio, but ranks 11th in population with 229,582 residents according to 2012 Census estimates.
    Our northern border consists of approximately 30 miles of Lake Erie shoreline, much of it accessible by the extensive park system, most significantly the largest natural sand beach in the state, which extends for a mile at the centrally located Mentor Headlands Beach State Park.
    This coastal asset puts Lake County in an enviable position for wind energy and water-related activities, and its strategic access to both SR2 and I-90, as well as proximity to Hopkins International Airport in Cleveland, has drawn many entrepreneurs from the medical, electrical, adhesive products and other commercial and industrial fields to the area.
    An available trained and competent workforce that is second to none in the region has been critical to that success, and Lakeland Community College, Lake Erie College, and Auburn Career Center offer opportunities for higher education and enrichment and a range of vocational programs that support and replenish that worker supply.
    Recreational activities abound, including the beautiful Classic Park where fans can cheer the Cleveland Indians Class A Affiliate team, the Lake County Captains in an intimate setting, perfect for the family.
    In addition, Lake County is host to three State Nature Preserves, the Arthur C. Holden Arboretum, and a park district, Lake Metroparks, comprised of 36 parks and 8,196 acres.
    Lake County’s reputation in agricultural circles is legendary. Blessed with some of the most fertile soil anywhere, the region earned the distinction as the Nursery Capital of the World, and our award-winning wine industry has ripened as an emerging tourism destination.
    Our commercial, agricultural and industrial bases open many opportunities for a better quality of life and for economic growth.
    Lake County boasts rich cultural heritage and traditions, bountiful natural resources, including two major rivers flowing through the County which provide us with harbors and marinas for shipping and superb recreational opportunities, strong labor and economic capital, committed leadership, and a diverse community of residents who embrace the region as their home with pride as have generations before them.


    Welcome to Lake County, Ohio!

    Sincerely,

    Lake County Commissioners

    ENGINEER'S MAILBOX POLICY by NewsPosts, Publish Date: Wednesday, November 26, 2014
    With the early snow fall this year, the Lake County Engineer's Office decided that it is a good time to remind residents living on County maintained roads of the mailbox replacement policy.  Many years ago, the Engineer's Office routinely repaired or replaced all mailboxes damaged during the winter snow removal process.  Unfortunately, this process proved to be costly when the time required for repairs combined with smaller work forces and increased prices for materials were examined. A revised policy was adopted in January of 2013.

    LAKE COUNTY GENERAL HEALTH DISTRICT RELOCATING TO VICTORIA PLACE by NewsPosts, Publish Date: Wednesday, November 26, 2014

    LAKE COUNTY GENERAL HEALTH DISTRICT HAS MOVED

     

    On December 1, 2014, Lake County General Health District (LCGHD) will have moved from the Lake County Administration Building to its temporary “permanent” location at Victoria Place located at One Victoria Square, Painesville, Ohio 44077. 

     

    Deputy Health Commissioner Ron H. Graham stated, “This move is the culmination of the hard work and charity of so many, including the Lake County Commissioners, the City of Painesville, our partners, and our dedicated staff.  The move represents a critical step in our ongoing recovery from the building fire and providing essential services to our public consumers.”

     

    LCGHD will begin to hold classes, clinics and other programs that were recently put on hold due to the devastating fire that took place at its facility located at 33 Mill Street in Painesville on August 20, 2014.  The most up to date programming information will be available on LCGHD’s Facebook (Lake County General Health District) and Twitter (LCHealthDist) social media sites and website (lcghd.org).  LCGHD may also be reached at the following telephone numbers:
