Message from the Mayor image

Welcome to the City of Babylon website! We don’t know how you found our lovely city, but we’re glad you did. The City of Babylon website is delivered as a labor of love from several groups: City of Babylon staff, Office of the Mayor, Friends of the City of Babylon, Babylon Police Department, State Bureau of Investigations, and the Arlen Foundation.

Babylon is a progressive city. We do not wait for the world to set the pace, we set the pace for the rest of the world. We have world-class healthcare, high-tech research and educational facilities that have fostered some of the greatest minds in recent years, strong dedication for encouraging innovation and entrepreneurship, and award winning coffee. It’s really good coffee. Babylon is surrounded by Dark Ridge National Forest, with its mountain slopes perfect for skiing and forests for hiking. No matter whether you’re looking for a night on the town, an adventure into mother nature, or even a walk on the beach, Babylon has you covered.

Babylon is a city rich with history, poverty and an itch for the macabre and wicked… and it’s been my writing playground since 2005. A fictional city that’s given me a gritty, noir space to work in with my characters and stories.

More on Babylon’s inception and a journey I took there can be found here.
