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.

Leaf Pickup to Begin October 27th


The annual leaf pickup program for the City of Ravenna will start on October 27th, starting in Ward 1 then will move to Ward 2, Ward 3 and Ward 4 and will continue in this cycle until the end of leaf season, generally by beginning of December or whenever the snow starts. 

We will update this website as we move through the wards.  The updated schedule can be found HERE.

There will be NO BRUSH OR BAG PICK UP after the week of Oct. 20th.  There also will no longer be a leaf bag container at the Street Dept. garage on Oakwood Street after the end of October.  We ask that the residents not use the paper bags during this time as they will not be distributed during the leaf pickup program.  Leaves must be raked to the curb in loose piles.  Grass clippings and flowers can be added to the leaves.  Leaves will not be picked up if mixed with tree limbs, brush or debris.  Please do not rake the leaves into the street as this causes clogging of the storm drainage systems and creates serious problems of flooding during heavy rains.  Do not park vehicles in front of leaf piles.  If you have any questions or concerns please call the Service Department at 330.296.6326.
