History[edit]

Green Township was first created in 1809 as part of Stark County. Green Township became part of Summit County after that county's establishment in 1840.[6] Green had several unincorporated hamlets, most notably Greensburg.[7] By 1900, five unincorporated burgs were in Green Township. Outside of the five burgs were farmlands with valuable crops and areas of coal. The local economy transitioned from farming to business and manufacturing. By 1950, farmers began to sell their lands to developers for residential housing. The increased development in the community led to discussions about becoming a city. Voters approved the merger of the village with the rest of the township in 1991. Fred Ravagnani was elected the first mayor of the Village of Green.[citation needed] In the beginning of 1991, Green Township was incorporated as the Village of Green. In mid-1992, the Village of Green was declared a city by Bob Taft.[8] The City of Green was declared a city in 1992.[9] In 1992, it became the City of Green with John Torok as the first mayor of the City of Green.[10]
