The City of Springdale is located in northern Hamilton County, approximately twenty miles from downtown Cincinnati. Bisected by I-275 and bordered by I-75, it is the home of a highly developed commercial/industrial community, as well as stable, well maintained residential neighborhoods.
Springdale has grown from a post revolutionary war settlement to become one of Cincinnati’s prominent suburban communities. Springdale was originally settled in the early 1800’s but grew little until after World War II when Cincinnati started a rapid expansion to the suburbs. Due to its strategic location, Springdale became one of the fastest growing areas. Springdale was incorporated as a village in December 1959 and forming a local government was top priority at the time. The first elections for village officers took place on May 3, 1960 and work began planning the village structure. With the opening of Greater Cincinnati’s first enclosed regional shopping center, Tri-County Mall, Springdale soon had the largest concentration of shopping outside of downtown Cincinnati. By February, 1971, Springdale’s population had grown to over 5,000 and it was officially given status as a city. Today, Springdale’s City Government supports the current population of 11,223 and a daytime workforce of over 30,000.
