Welcome to Highland Heights

Welcome to the City of Highland Heights. Nestled in the hills of Northern Kentucky, just seven miles south of Cincinnati, our quiet suburb got its start as a farm community in the 1920s. To this day, we’ve maintained our small-town intimacy and security, while providing convenient access to a vibrant metropolis. We’re also home to one of Kentucky’s fastest growing post-secondary institutions, Northern Kentucky University (NKU).

I am honored to serve such a diverse community of seniors, working families, college students and young professionals who live, learn and work here. Over the past decade, our administration and council have worked hard to establish a strong financial foundation for our city—one that will ensure continued quality services for our residents and will allow us to build on our tremendous assets, paving the way for a prosperous future.

I’m proud to call Highland Heights my home of more than 40 years, and I invite you to explore our website to learn more about our community and all it has to offer. Better yet—stop by one of our parks, visit one of our many storefronts, or catch an NCAA Division I NKU sporting event, and see for yourself how we’re achieving Growth Through Progress.
