Encompassing 36 square miles with two major waterways, the Buffalo Creek and Cazenovia Creek, Elma sits squarely in the center of Erie County and can safely call itself the Heart of Erie County. Over 11,000 residents call Elma home , as does Iroquois Central School, one of Western New Yorks top rated school systems, and Elma Meadows Golf Course, one of Erie Countys top public courses. Residents enjoy spending time with their family and friends at two of Elma’s parks, the Elma Village Green and Creek Road Park. There are also athletic fields, a Senior Center, Town Museum and Public Library.

Elma has a vibrant business community anchored by large firms like Moog Valve, Steuben Foods and Stervotronics. Its heart is a retail plaza in the center of Town, several restaurants scattered throughout Town, and many small businesses that provide residents with a multitude of services.
