The United States of America is a country in North America that extends from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean and shares land borders with Canada and Mexico. The United States is a federal constitutional republic, with its capital in Washington, D.C., District of Columbia.
The city of Akron is the county seat of Summit County in state of Ohio. The city is located between Cleveland to the north and Canton to the south. It is located in northeastern Ohio on the Cuyahoga River, approximately 60 miles west of the Pennsylvania border.
It was founded in 1825 near the Ohio and Erie Canal and became a manufacturing center owing to its location at a staircase of locks. The locks were needed due to the higher elevation of the area, which gave rise to the name Summit County as well as Akron, which is a rough translation of summit into Greek. After the decline of heavy manufacturing, the city's industry has since diversified into research, financial and high tech sectors.
The Akron-Canton regional airport is one of many places near the city that is named for both towns. While the U.S. census bureau still counts the two metropolitan areas as separate metro areas, if combined, the total population of the Akron-Canton area equals 1,101,894 people.
In the city the population was spread out with 25.3 percent under the age of 18, 10.5 percent from 18 to 24, 30.3 percent from 25 to 44, 20.3 percent from 45 to 64, and 13.5 percent who were 65 years of age or older.
Akron’s history and the history of the rubber industry are mutually bound. The rubber industry transformed Akron from a small canal town into a fledgling city. Today Art Deco buildings in downtown AkronGoodyear and Firestone continue to manufacture racing and experimental tires and Firestone’s technical center remains in Akron.
The city adopted a new charter of the commissioner manager type in 1920, but reverted to its old form in 1924. The current mayor of Akron is Don Plusquellic. Mayor Plusquellic is currently serving his fifth term, and was the President of the United States Conference of Mayors during 2004. The City of Akron created the first Joint Economic Development District to promote regional commerce with neighboring suburbs. As it is often regarded as among the most beautiful parts of Ohio one of the most visited places amongst the most die-hard travelers the world over.
