HISTORY – In 1815, sixteen pioneers settled in the area called Orange which included the present cities and villages of Pepper Pike, Orange, Moreland Hills, Woodmere, and Hunting Valley.  A township was established in 1820 with 36 voters.  By the late 1800's there was a village hall at Orange Center, now the intersection of Pinetree and SOM Center Roads.  There were nine one-room elementary schools in the area.  For high school, students went to nearby towns at a cost of 50 cents per year per pupil.

 In 1924, 250 residents of Orange signed a petition to separate and incorporate as Pepper Pike Village in order to issue bonds for water and roads.  The Van Sweringen Company developed the area for country estates and put in new roads and three traffic circles.  The Village became a city in 1970.

 There are several interesting theories about the name of Pepper Pike, but none of them can be verified.

 POPULATION – According to the 2010 census the population is 5,979.  The number of homes in Pepper Pike according to the Building Department records is 2,349.

 GENERAL STATISTICS – Pepper Pike covers approximately seven square miles.  Within its boundaries are five churches and synagogues, three private clubs, a college, the Orange Schools, the Orange Library branch, two non-profit agencies serving the needs of young people, a Senior Center, clusters of retail stores, plus office and commercial buildings.

 INCOME TAX / OTHER SOURCES OF REVENUE – An important source of revenue is the city income tax of 1%.  (A credit of 1/2 of 1% to a maximum of 1% is granted to residents who pay city income tax to another municipality where they are employed.)  Other sources of revenue include taxes on real estate, motor vehicle fuels, admissions.  Building fees, court fines, and motor vehicle licensing also provide revenue to the city.

 PROPERTY TAX RATE – For the tax year 2017 (collected in 2018) the effective tax rate for Pepper Pike is $79.02 per $1,000 of the taxable value of each parcel of real estate. The effective tax rate is the rate used for calculation of real estate taxes, based on the taxable value of property which is by statute equal to 35% of its fair market value as determined by the Cuyahoga County Fiscal Officer’s Office. An easier way to calculate the amount of property taxes one would pay for a house in Pepper Pike is to multiply the market value of the property by 2.77% for calendar year 2017.

 HOMESTEAD EXEMPTION – A reduction in property taxes is available to individuals 65 and older and to individuals with a disability.  Please call 216-443-7050 for more information.

 BONDS / DEBT RATING – Outstanding are $8,039,014 of Special Assessment and General Obligation Bonds and Ohio Public Works Commission loans as of January 1, 2016. The City portion of the 2016 debt service payment due is $273,806 or 32% with the Special Assessment portion paid by property owner assessments equaling $575,377 or 68%. The final maturity is 2030 for both special assessment and General Obligation Bonds. The City also has an OPWC loan that ends in 2035. Moody’s has assigned a rating of AAA on the City’s outstanding bonds.



RECYCLING:  All recyclable materials (cans, cartons, glass, paper & boxes, plastic bottles and containers) may be mixed together in the same bag.  All paper may now be included with the glass, plastic, and cans.  City Hall has bins near the service garage, to drop off papers, co-mingled recyclables. The following rules apply to weekly collection: 

1.     ALL recycled items must be placed inside 13-gallon or 30- gallon, blue or clear plastic recycle bags.  Small grocery store plastic bags will no longer be acceptable.  Such bags may be purchased from Heinen’s or Kredo Hardware.  

2.     Recycling bags should weigh 30 pounds or less.

Glass:             Food and beverage containers of any color, rinsed and without lids.  Broken glass should be packaged separately and so labeled

YARD WASTE – The State of Ohio has mandated that yard waste cannot be deposited in landfills. Pepper Pike, therefore, does not accept grass clippings. Residents are encouraged to properly dispose of of yard waste on their property by composting. Short grass cuttings left on the lawn are beneficial. Instructions on how and where to compost are available at City Hall. Pepper Pike will pick up bush and tree branches if bundled and tied. These items are included in the Branch Clipping Program. Compliance instructions and scheduling should be obtained from the Service Department. 

SCRAP TIRE ROUND-UP -  the Service Department has one scrap tire round-up per year in September. Tires must be off the rims. During summer months, tires are a potential breeding ground for mosquitoes. Please be sure to store any scrap tires indoors until collection.

Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Round-up - The city holds a Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) round up last Friday of every month. Items must be placed in boxes with box lids open, weighing less than 40 pounds each. Please call the Service Department to schedule a Friday special pickup. You may also drop off these items at the Service Department on the last Friday of the month. HHW is any product  that is toxic, flammable, corrosive, reactive, or explosive.  Some examples of HHW are  oil-based paint, turpentine, wood stains, gasoline, pesticides, oil, mercury, thermostats, thermometers, furniture polish, household cleaners, chemicals etc.

Computers & Cell Phones - Drop off old computers (CPU's, monitors, keyboards etc.) and cell phones at the Service Department or call us to schedule a Friday special pickup. Computers collected will be either refurbished or scrapped and the parts will be recycled. Complete sets of cell phones (phone, battery and charger) will be packed and donated to the Cuyahoga County Witness Protection Program and the Domestic Violence Project. Cell phones brought in without the battery and/or charger will be scrapped and the parts will be recycled.

CONTAINER DROP-OFF PROGRAM – For a modest fee the Service Department will provide residents with a large (6 or 12 cubic yard) container for disposing of yard waste, household goods, etc.  Container rental starts in April and ends at the first snow fall.
