Founded in 1802, the community of Suffield Township, Ohio lies in the southwest corner of Portage County. We are uniquely situated in close proximity to Akron, Ohio to the northwest and Hartville, Ohio to the south. This gives our community a great mix of big city opportunities combined with rural charm.
With a population of 6285 as noted by the U.S. Census Bureau in 2013, Suffield township is a close knit community - a community where neighbors look out for each other and wave when passing on the road. Township services include a highly trained Fire Department providing Fire and EMS protection to the township, as well as a hard working Road Department taking care of the roadways and other services related needs of the community.
We welcome you to our community. Please explore our web site to see more of what Suffield has to offer!
A lot of residents have had questions about the cleanup of the old Teledyne Monarch site at the southern border of our township. Our zoning inspector, Mr. Adam Bey, is on top of this issue and it has now migrated up to involve the EPA. We know that it appears to be moving at a snail's pace, but things really are moving. Please be patient with us as we work to resolve this issue.
