Property Search

Success Through Collaboration

A blighted property has been removed, and the cleared land will once again be useful to the community. The Portage County Land Bank acquired the parcel at 3567 Ohio 59 in Ravenna. The neighboring New Testament Baptist Church showed interest in purchasing the property and utilizing it for church activities.

Jim DiPaola, Ravenna Township Liaison & Zoning Inspector, expressed his support of the sale saying “This is a win-win-win situation for the church, Township and the land bank. This is first property done in Ravenna Township, and this is a day we have looked forward to from the start of the land bank. To Ravenna Township the land bank is a success that will only get better.”

Misty Henderson purchased a side lot from the Portage County Land Bank in Windham.

“The Portage County Land Bank allowed me to purchase the lot next to my property so that I could expand my yard and increase my home’s value. Thank you Portage County Land Bank and staff for your prompt service.”
