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.

Community Survey

The City of Ravenna recently started working with community revitalization consultants to gather input and ideas for a Ravenna Community Plan.  The consultants interviewed about 35 people on a recent visit, representing residents, business leaders, government, landlords, schools and nonprofits.

Now they'd like to get additional input and ideas from a larger number of people who live, work and visit in Ravenna.  The consultants will use the information to develop recommendations and strategies that can help to strengthen and improve Ravenna.  Your participation is completely voluntary.  The information you provide will be anonymous.

The plan will be presented to the community in late June or early July.

The survey takes about 15 minutes.  Please complete the survey before midnight on May 31.  Thank you in advance for your help.
