Huber Heights is a city in Montgomery, Miami, and Greene Counties in the U.S. state of Ohio. Huber Heights's motto is "America's largest community of brick homes." The city is named for Charles Huber, the developer who constructed a number of the houses that would later comprise the city. Suburban development began in the area in 1956. The former Wayne Township, now defunct, incorporated as the City of Huber Heights in 1980. Huber Heights continued to grow by annexing parcels in Miami and Greene Counties. Huber Heights is the second largest suburb in the Dayton Metropolitan Statistical Area by population, behind Kettering (with 57,502 in 2000), though it is larger by land area than that of Kettering (which comprises 18.7 sq mi). Huber Heights' current mayor is Ron Fisher. Its population was 38,212 at the 2000 census.
