The City of Ravenna is zoned in an effort to effectively manage land use. Through this process we have clearly defined residential, commercial, and industrial areas throughout the city. This provides residents from unwanted industrial or commercial operations within quiet residential areas. Likewise, this provides business with the assurance they need to establish operations in Ravenna, allowing them to choose locations where future expansion might be possible. While the City is divided into these specific zones by law, the policy also offers some flexibility. A zoning board meets regularly to hear requests for variances and to hear appeals. The board strives to meet the needs of commerce while protecting the needs of residents.
