Moment with the Mayor for February 24, 2018
The updated logo, along with a new tagline and way-finding signage was announced for the City and downtown at the City Council meeting on February 20, 2018. I am grateful to Main Street Wadsworth, Poggemeyer Design Group, the Steering Committee members, those that attended the public meetings, and each individual that completed the branding surveys last year. The final design is a true representation of Wadsworth and those who participated in the branding process. Wadsworth’s new tagline, “A Community Unmatched” is the perfect description of our city, linking the Match Company past with the present. Wadsworth is a unique combination of a mid-size welcoming community that offers numerous city services, a variety of shopping, restaurants, great schools and employment opportunities. Stop in at City Hall or check the City’s website for our updated look!

State of the City
As I have stated previously, 2017 was a very productive year for the City of Wadsworth. Many major projects were initiated and/or completed over the last year, for which I am very proud. A “State of the City” presentation was made at the Wadsworth Chamber of Commerce meeting recently that reviewed these improvements in some detail. If you are interested in seeing this, a recording of the presentation can be found online at and searching the State of the City or Wadsworth Chamber of Commerce.

Open House
The Soprema Senior Center & Café will host an Open House on Wednesday, March 7, from 6-8 pm. And will feature samples, door prizes, program highlights, and exhibits and tours of the Center. It is located on the Wadsworth High School and Community Center campus. The Senior Center is supported by the City of Wadsworth and the Wadsworth Older Adults Foundation. Membership is free and offers a number of incentives and perks. The Center is open Monday-Friday from 8:30 am – 4:30 pm. The Soprema Café is made possible through collaborative partnerships with the Soprema Senior Center, Windfall Industries, Medina County Board of Developmental Disabilities, Medina County Office for Older Adults, and the Wadsworth Older Adults Foundation. While the Soprema Café caters to senior citizens, it is open to the general public and all ages are welcome to check out the excellent service, fabulous food and bargain prices. The Café is open Monday-Friday from 7:30 am – 2:00 pm.

Until next week………
