Dear Mantua Village Residents:

Beginning September 3, 2019, the Portage County Regional Planning Commission will be conducting an income survey within your area of Mantua Village. The information obtained through this survey will help determine whether the Portage County Commissioners can obtain a grant that could help the residents in your area.

Historically, the income rate in Mantua Village has been such that it has made it difficult to obtain grants. However, we may find that we are in a better position to obtain grant opportunities dependent upon the outcome of this income survey. Please answer carefully and as accurately as possible keeping in mind that ALL INDIVIDUAL HOUSEHOLD ANSWERS SHALL REMAIN CONFIDENTIAL. It is important to note that the information you provide will be kept by address only and not by name and will be stored at the Regional Planning Commission for grant purposes only.

Please assist Lisa Reeves, or Director Todd Peetz and other volunteers of the Portage County Regional Planning Commission, by answering their questions.

If you have any questions about this survey or how it will be used, please contact the Portage County Regional Planning Commission at 330-297-3613 Monday through Friday between 8:00 am and 4:30 pm.

We appreciate your cooperation with this important and valuable neighborhood survey. We are offering an online survey for your convenience. You may access the survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BLPZXLD.

Sincerely,

Linda Clark, Mayor

A Little History

Mantua Village (pronounced, "MAN-a-way") is located along the Cuyahoga River (known by native inhabitants as the "Crooked River") in Portage County. From its humble beginnings in the early 1800s, with its railroad station, 13 saloons, house of "ill repute" and a shipping point for area farmers, Mantua Village was formed and quickly began to grow. A Post Office was established in 1860 and the Village was incorporated in 1898. Our town, named after a famous city in Northern Italy, has continued to grow and mature. It is a beautiful, peaceful village, filled with historic buildings and friendly people who care.

Mantua is located on Ohio State Route 44, ten miles north of Ravenna (the Portage County Seat), twenty miles northeast of Akron, and twenty-seven miles southeast of Cleveland. Today, with access to the Ohio Turnpike just two miles to the south and access to US Route 422 seven miles to the north, we believe that this area will soon be the fastest-growing and most sought-after region in Northeast Ohio. Clean air, beautiful countryside, and excellent schools, backed up by sound zoning and facilitated planned growth, make Mantua Village a most desireable place to live and work.

We invite you to investigate the potentials of this exciting corridor that runs between Cleveland and Youngstown, and be assured that you, your family and your business will not only be welcome, but helped in every way possible. Come look us over and join with us in the wonderful years to come.
