City of Upper Arlington
The City of Upper Arlington is a premier, mostly residential community within the Columbus region. Our residents are friendly, welcoming, engaged, passionate and creative, with high expectations from their local government. Reflective of the educated, family-oriented community
that we serve, the City is committed to exceptional, innovative service delivery. Our safety forces prioritize community engagement as much as they focus on saving lives and law enforcement. Our public works team builds and maintains infrastructure systems. Our parks and recreation professionals provide meaningful opportunities to gather, celebrate and enjoy our community’s many amenities. Across the organization, our team members explore and embrace new ways to enhance service delivery, while furthering sustainability goals.
The City’s role goes beyond managing the routine functions of government, it includes working to make Upper Arlington one of the best communities in the United States. As the primary steward of the community’s health and wellbeing, top priorities for the City include a combination of long-range planning, sustainability, economic development and fiscal accountability.
The City organization, its elected leaders and the community are committed to advancing Upper Arlington as a place that is welcoming, inclusive and supportive for all who choose to live or work here, as well as all visitors to our community. With the guidance of a newly formed Community Relations Committee, the City is actively reviewing and updating its organizational policies, hiring practices and purchasing procedures to reflect this commitment.
