We actively work to break down silos and find innovative solutions to leverage organizational strengths and overcome weaknesses.
Where We're Located
With more than 870,000 residents, Macomb County is the third most populous county in Michigan. The county has a strong connection to the outdoors being home to more than 130 parks covering 12,000 acres. The four major public parks — Freedom Hill County Park, Macomb Orchard Trail, Lake St. Clair Metropark and Stony Creek Metropark each celebrate unique natural assets of our local communities.
Heralded for its natural resources, Macomb County is home to proud residents known for their strong work ethic, a business-friendly environment, excellent schools from Pre-K through Community College, a talented workforce and affordable housing. The strong industrial base (engineering, research and development, and advanced manufacturing), community variety and growing cultural diversity have been and continue to attract residents and businesses.
