The Village of Poland

"Proud Past, Promising Future"

The Village of Poland is located within the northwestern portion of Poland Township. The 2010 census set the population of the Village at 2,555. Poland Village was incorporated on August 7, 1866, its form of government being established by the Ohio Revised Code. The Village is governed by the Mayor, six members of council. Public officials are elected for four-year terms. The Fiscal Officer, Solicitor, Street Commissioner, Police Chief (Village Marshall), Street Tree Commissioner, Zoning Administrator, and the eight boards which involve citizens are appointed by the Mayor with the consent of Council. The Engineer is hired on a contractual basis by council.

Poland Village Council meets on the first and third Tuesdays of September, October, November, December, January, February, March, April, and May as well as the third Tuesdays of June, July, and August at 7:30 pm. at the Village Town Hall, 308 South Main Street.

One of the most challenging areas for local government is that of zoning. A comprehensive zoning plan was adopted by council in 1978. Zoning issues are considered by the Planning Commission, Design Review Board, Exterior Maintenance Board, and the board of Zoning Appeals. These boards all involve citizens in addition to a member of council.

The Forest Board, which oversees the Poland Municipal Forest, the Hine Memorial Board, which oversees the Village Green and Church Cemetery also involve citizen volunteers in conjunction with a member of council.

Municipal Forest Restoration Study

The Council and Mayor of the Village of Poland are pleased to announce the awarding of the Mauthe Bridge rehabilitation project to Murphy Contracting of Youngstown, Ohio. Following the acceptance of Murphy’s bid in November 2019, the Bridge Oversight Committee, chaired by Councilman Sam Moffie, met with stakeholders at the preconstruction meeting on Monday, January 20 2020.

Construction is scheduled to commence on March 16, 2020 and will continue for a period of not more than sixty days. Those using the Poland Municipal Forest during that timespan should keep clear of the construction area. Given the need of heavy equipment for portions of the rehabilitation, those using the Forest should also expect temporary trail closures in the immediate area of the Bridge. Information related to the construction and closure will be posted on the Village website and that of the Forest Board as well as in writing at the kiosks near the Forest entrances and at Village Hall.

The Poland Forest Foundation is still actively seeking donations for this project and donations are tax deductible.

Free Firewood is available at the College Street entrance to the Poland Municipal Forest.
