Mayor’s Message

Greetings Family !

I’d like to start this article by thanking each of you for allowing me another opportunity to serve as your mayor. I’m excited for the new opportunities that 2020 holds for Trotwood. It already promises to be a sensational year for development in the City of Trotwood.  One example of this is seeing our new Trotwood library moving closer to its completion. This 13,000 square foot building is estimated to cost $5.1 million.  An official opening date is expected very soon; please watch our website/social media for upcoming details.

We’re also pleased to share that additional new development which is happening on Main St.  Mr. Lance Detrick, CEO of Goodwill Easter Seals recently gave a presentation to city council displaying a rendering of the new 12,000 square foot building. This $2,000,000 building to be constructed on Main St. will offer various amenities to the community including: services to our senior citizens. There will also be meeting spaces available to the community.  Ground breaking will occur later this year.

Our Trotwood city staff is currently working with the County on plans for the development of our new Western Division Courthouse also to be built on Main St.  Look forward to more information on this coming to you as well.

Additionally, I would like you to welcome the following new businesses to our community:

Premiere Energy (a subsidiary of Vectren) has located in our Trotwood Industrial Park, repurposing the old Danny Boy Ice Cream facility.  This brings new living waged jobs to our wonderful community.

Mansea Roofing Company is now located in the former Wolohan building on Salem Ave. They are new to our region and we are excited to have them occupy that space.

And, U-Haul has completed their renovation at the former Walmart on Salem Ave to meet your rental and storage needs.

These are three new businesses that have resulted in more commercial buildings being repurposed in the City of Trotwood.

Lastly, we are proud to share that we have heard you. We recognize the need for a local grocer and we are currently in talks with Gordon Food Service (GFS) to create a newly remodeled store at their current location to serve our grocery needs. We are excited about this development and hope you are as well.

This has already been an amazing year!! Let’s keep the momentum and our great community moving forward together.


Mary A. McDonald, Mayor
City of Trotwood, Ohio
