Welcome

Welcome to the City of Ravenna. We are very proud of our City and we invite you to explore our web site and discover a small sampling of what Ravenna has to offer.

The County seat of Portage County, Ravenna is very much "Main Street, USA". Founded in 1799 and developed throughout the 1800s, Ravenna is a wonderful blend of 1800s architecture, century homes, and modern housing and industry. Our downtown area is full of nostalgia, reminiscent of a time when Main Street was a place where people would congregate, converse, and do business.

Whether you're looking to relocate your family, or you're looking for a new location for your business, Ravenna is definitely worth considering. Please visit us and learn what our residents already know... Ravenna is a great place to live, work and play.

This award demonstrates the commitment Superintendent Dennis Honkala and his entire staff has toward providing a quality education to our children.  Everyone throughout the district is to be commended for their efforts toward making our community a wonderful place to live and work!

Community Revitalization Strategy

In the Spring of 2015 the City of Ravenna contracted with Community Development Consulting to develop a Community Revitalization Strategy for the city.  The strategy is intended to provide insight and guidelines for a variety of public and private sector entities (not only City Government) and people who desire to join forces in creating a better Ravenna.
