The City of West Carrollton [1] is located in the south central portion of Montgomery County, eight miles southwest of the City of Dayton and 50 minutes north of the City of Cincinnati. The city is bordered by the cities of Moraine to the north, Miamisburg to the south and Miami Township to the east and west. The city covers an area of 6.4 square miles.

The City of West Carrollton is part of the multi-county Miami Valley Region. Other counties in this region include Darke, Greene, Miami, Preble, Clinton, and portions of Warren. West Carrollton is also one of seven first tier suburbs of the core City of Dayton. First tier suburbs are older, more mature communities that were established prior to the wave of suburban growth that swept the nation after World War II. First suburbs are historically viewed as trolley car communities, industrial boroughs and working class suburbs. Other first suburbs in the Miami Valley Region include Centerville, Clayton, Englewood, Huber Heights, Kettering, Miamisburg, Moraine, Oakwood, Riverside, Trotwood and Vandalia. Today, suburban expansion from central core cities is characterized by growth patterns that are decentralized and encourage sprawl.
