Doing Business



The City of Painesville has the quality and atmosphere of a small town, with the amenities of a big city.  The business community includes hometown successes, national corporations, creative entrepreneurs, and world-renowned agriculture. Our downtown, which is centered around the beautiful Veteran's Park, offers a charming mix of local retail with small neighborhood markets located between the historic courthouse, church and municipal buildings.

We encourage well-planned growth in our business and industry sectors to add jobs for our residents and share the cost of providing municipal services.  Painesville is focused on a working partnership with our citizens, companies, and organizations to increase the quality and vibrancy of their lives.  The City of Painesville is the ideal community to build your business and love your life.
