Grove City Named Ohio Magazine’s Best Hometown for 2012-13

Grove City has been selected Ohio Magazine’s Best Hometown of Central Ohio for 2012-13. The City will receive regional recognition when featured on the cover of the November issue.

The magazine’s editors selected one city from each of five regions in the state as a Best Hometown for 2012-13. The selection was based on categories of civic life: community spirit, education, attractions, events, safety, business environment, culture and heritage. Grove City met or exceeded in all areas.

“This is an honor that belongs to the residents and business owners in Grove City,” said Mayor Richard L. “Ike” Stage. “We are proud of our small town feel while we continue to grow. Receiving this recognition as ‘Best Hometown’ is what we work to accomplish – every day.”

A collector’s edition of Ohio Magazine featuring Grove City on the cover will hit newsstands Tuesday, Oct. 23. Additional stories featuring Grove City will be highlighted in the “Best of Ohio” edition in January and again in the July issue.

“We are certainly pleased with this significant recognition and look forward to sharing the exceptional quality of life in Grove City,” said City Administrator Chuck Boso. “Our civic organizations, schools, churches and community groups work together to make Grove City a hometown we all admire.”
