Located between the City of Elmira and the Town and Village of Horseheads, Elmira Heights is the main crossroad from the West to the East for the heavy traffic and deliveries of goods to the local businesses.
The Village is not considered an industrial entity because the major plants such as Anchor Glass, Purolator, and CAF USA, Inc. are located beyond the municipal limits and do not generate taxes to the Village.
It is a quiet community of about 4,200 people, with a Civic Administration Center housing Village Hall, Police, and Fire Departments, Engineering, Code Enforcement, Urban Renewal Agency, and the Village Court. Three beautiful parks grace the area with two of them housing the Little League and the Cinderella League and the third one is complete with a gazebo, concession stand and pavilion, offering concerts and events during the summer.
Because of its location, Elmira Heights is close to all main points of interest, such as the Elmira Corning Regional Airport, Harris Hill, the Arnot Mall, the Mark Twain Golf Course, and several large shopping centers.
Many people settle in the Heights for the quality of the school district, other for the quality of the services they receive. So when you are passing through our Village, slow down, say hi and stop and visit!
Mayor Margaret D. Smith.
