Mantua Village Income Survey
Back in March 2020, the Portage County Regional Planning Commission conducted an on-line income survey for the Village of Mantua. The information obtained by this survey is intended to help determine whether the Portage County Commissioners can obtain grants that could help our community with infrastructure needs (Roads, water, sewer). We have a grant to benefit the Village and we cannot complete the application without this additional information.
Because of COVID-19, parts of the previous survey will need to be competed and or updated for consistency and Regional Planning Commission staff will be doing door to door surveys for the remainder of September and October. However, we are very close to having a complete survey, meaning having enough residences replying to the survey to meet State income surveying requirements. Since you have received this letter, we need your help! PLEASE click here to participate in the survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BLPZXLD, or you can also call Todd Peetz or Lisa Reeves at Portage County Regional Planning Commission at 330-297-3613 and answer the 2 questions. It only takes a minute, but it is so important that we finish the survey so we can apply for upcoming grants.
Please answer carefully and accurately 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 be name and will be stored at the Regional Planning Commission for grant purposes only.
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. Thank you.

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.
