Message from Mayor Don Schonhardt

    Welcome to Hilliard where the past, present and future converge in one of the best locations in the nation. Whether you are a new resident, a visitor, or a business looking for a place to grow, you have come to the right place.

    The faces of Hilliard range from the quaint shops, businesses and restaurants that populate historic Old Hilliard, to the sprout of new business and industry that lines Trueman Boulevard. An abundance of parks and recreational opportunities accent the quality of life that is our hallmark.

    Hilliard is a spirited game of euchre at our Senior Center or a few quiet moments at our First Responders Park. Hilliard is a robust game of softball on one of the city’s diamonds, a leisurely stroll, jog or bike ride down the Heritage Trail, or a cool dip in our new aquatic center.

    As Mayor, I’m proud of our community where there is something for everyone, young and old and everyone in between. We are a city on the move, centrally located and open for business. Located near downtown Columbus, we are a short ride to Columbus International Airport.

    I like to say we are known for the “companies” we keep. Hilliard, for example, is the headquarters location for such corporate luminaries as BMW Financial Services, Advanced Drainage Systems, Micro Electronics and the famous Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing Team.

    We have a first-class school system and the bottom line is that Hilliard is a quality place to raise a family and bask in the warmth of a community that genuinely cares about the past, the present and the future.

    We are proud of Hilliard. Come visit us and find out why. If you are looking for an ideal location to put down roots for your family or your growing business, Hilliard defines the word “ideal”.
