About Trotwood

Trotwood, Ohio, has long been known for its civic pride and entrepreneurial spirit, governmental excellence and commercial success as well as its small town charm with big city advantages.

Today, Trotwood’s leadership is working hard to elevate its urban-suburban amenities and offer up its hometown values to attract more businesses and residents by taking bold steps to move forward. Trotwood’s rich farmland, scenic railway-turned-bikepath and picturesque Olde Town district preserve its historic backbone which was born out of the entrepreneurial spirit that drives Trotwood.

The first outer ring suburb of Dayton opens up the largely undeveloped northwest Montgomery County region. Its nearly 25,000 residents are spread comfortably over almost 30 square miles, enjoying affordable family living in a non-congested neighborhood setting. The community’s solid median income yields substantial buying power to support its regional shopping hub and drive more upscale housing to take root. The Trotwood-Madison City Schools $90 million investment has yielded a new high school, middle school and a K-1 school all located on a central campus as well as two brand new elementary schools located in Trotwood neighborhoods.

Location, Location, Location

One of Trotwood’s key community assets is its location, as it has relative proximity to 2 major highways, 2  international airports, and one of the primary logistic hubs in the United States. Located just eleven miles from the I-70/I-75 interchange, Trotwood residents and businesses can access two of the nation’s largest highways in minutes. Trotwood is conveniently located just 14 miles from the Dayton International Airport and 85 miles from the Columbus Airport.  This is ideal for businesses and residents who require regular travel to have the options available through either of these international airports.

Due to such prime location, Trotwood is neighbor to many large employers and institutions.  Just 20 miles from Wright Patterson Air Force Base, one of the largest employers in the region (both military and civilian), Trotwood offers a great location for businesses and residents who work directly or indirectly with the base and its employees.

Trotwood is also home to the Northwest Regional RTA Hub, providing regular bus and transportation access to citizens and employees for local businesses anywhere within the Greater Dayton Region.
