        The City is proud to be able to provide residents with quality police, fire and street services. Both the Police and Fire/EMS Departments are available 24 hours a day through the 9-1-1 system serving Summit County, which is staffed by Norton Dispatchers. The Police Department, working closely with the community, strives to inspire the public's trust, understanding and confidence, while reducing crime and the fear of crime.

        The Fire Department is composed of full-time and part-time fire personnel who are certified Emergency Medical Technician/Paramedic trained. The Norton Fire and EMS Services personnel respond to over 1,400 calls per year.

        The Service Department maintains over 100 miles of roads within the City. During heavy snowfalls ó not unheard of in Northern Ohio ó the crews are kept very busy plowing about 17,000 miles using on average 6,000 tons of salt.

        The City of Norton has a large, rentable Community Center, as well as ten beautiful public parks within its borders for residents to enjoy.  The following seven parks are owned and maintained by the City: Columbia Woods Park, Frashure Park, Helmick Park,  Holiday Heights Park, Loyal Oak Community Park, Williams Memorial Park and Williams Peace Park.  McCafferty Park is a City of Barberton park located within Norton borders.  Silver Creek Metro Park, a Summit County Metropolitan park, is also located within the City.  Lake Dorothy is a private park, but families are known to visit the Loyal Oak Lake Park for other summertime fun.  Organized youth sports of baseball, football / cheerleading, and soccer  are highly active in the city.  The following website, nortonyouthsports.com, is a source for information on a variety of Norton Youth Sports Organizations.        

         Norton also enjoys the support of many Community Service clubs such as the Norton Kiwanis, the Norton Women's Club, the Lions Club, the Norton Historical Society, Norton Villagers 4-H Club, and various garden clubs.  Boy Scouts / Girl Scouts are also active within the City.

        The Norton School system enjoys a highly rated academic report, as well as extremely supportive sport and band parental groups.  The DARE program and Safety Town is actively supported within the Norton school system.

         Norton residents rely on several newspaper sources such as the Akron Beacon Journal, the The Post Newspaper, the Barberton Herald, and the West Side Leader.         

       Norton is popular not only for its quality of life, but also for its easy accessibility to major cities. With access to an active railroad line and with 12 miles of interstate intersecting the city via I-76/U.S. Route 224, as well as State Routes 21, 261 and 585, itís quite easy to get around. At about 23 square miles of territory, the City offers a large expanse of land with a large lot housing environment, but also enjoys retail stores and manufacturing companies, and is home to two international headquarters.  Visitors may access the City center by exiting I-76 at Cleveland-Massillon Road, Exit 14 and heading south.

       One of the largest attended events in Norton is the annual Cider Festival, now held on the first weekend of October, organized by a private committee and sponsored by the Lions Club. Begun in 1988 by the Lions Club in the historic Loyal Oak area, it spread throughout the Loyal Oak neighborhood. Streets were closed during this special weekend to make room for the hundreds of visitors from neighboring communities. In 2008, the Festival's 20th year, the festival moved to Columbia Woods Park located at 4060 Columbia Woods Dr. The larger and idyllic park surroundings accommodates the growing crowds and provides more room to expand and enhance the Festival for even more cider tasting and apple delicacies, games, rides, exhibits, contests, a gazebo for the concerts and, of course, the traditional gobbling up of the pancakes at the Boy Scout Troop 132's pancake breakfast held before and after the festivalís kick-off parade through the middle of town. As the city logo indicates, come to Norton, a Growing Community.
