 Akron, Ohio, Oct. 27, 2020 — Akron Mayor Dan Horrigan is proud to release the 2020 Hey Akron Magazine. Due to budget limitations caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the City’s 2020 Hey Akron Magazine will be delivered virtually this year. You can view the full magazine at www.akronohio.gov/heyakron.

“These pages of the 2020 Hey Akron Magazine will give our citizens a glimpse into the people, projects and initiatives that have defined our year,” said Mayor Horrigan. “For all of us, 2020 has been a year of firsts. It’s been a year of hardship and struggle, but also one of adaptation and growth. We have learned much about ourselves and about what we want most for our families and community. We better understand what we need from our leaders and have learned, most importantly, how to better take care of each other.”
