Why Powell?

The City of Powell is home to a distinctive entrepreneurial spirit shared by more than 1,300 small to medium-sized companies. Our businesses enjoy a vibrant community of more than 13,000 residents, a revitalized downtown district, and an easy, convenient commute to our state’s capital, Columbus.

Our progress, charm and family-friendly atmosphere don’t go unnoticed. Money Magazine recognized us as one of the best places to live in the United States. We were named the ninth best suburb in the U.S. by Business Insider. And Movoto Real Estate ranked us as the fifth safest small town in Ohio.

Powell offers a thriving community of local merchants, artisans and boutiques intermingled with upscale restaurants and progressive businesses. Powell is committed to the City’s economic development and supports our local businesses with a wide range of resources to help them grow and succeed.

Our history, humble roots and small-town hospitality serve as a foundation of our growth. Accessible to a big city, yet nestled in the rolling highlands of the Scioto and Olentangy River valleys, it’s clear why more than 13,000 people and 1,300 businesses choose to call Powell home.

You too can be at Home in Powell. Welcome Home.
