Mayor's Welcome

Steve-Schneemann-photo-(1).jpgOn behalf of Farmington City Council, welcome to the great City of Farmington; a wonderful place for families to live, work and play.

Farmington has so much to offer its residents and guests. Our historic neighborhoods have architectural integrity and charm, and are walkable, safe and friendly. Our downtown business district, theater, public library, city hall, parks, restaurants, shopping, and museums are all connected with our neighborhoods, and are within walking distance.


Farmington has maintained its history with iconic assets such as the Governor Warner Mansion, the Masonic Lodge, and the Civic Theater on Grand River Avenue, just to name a few. We also continue to invest in the future of our community with a strong capital projects program. New streetscapes, public art initiatives, and multi-modal infrastructures have reinvigorated our downtown. We have one of the highest rated Farmer's Markets in the state and are one of only a few communities in southeast Michigan with an outdoor winter ice rink; both of which are conveniently located in Downtown Farmington’s Riley Park.


These types of investments and amenities resulted in our being ranked 27th in the 2013 CNN/Money Magazine Best Places to Live – America’s Small Towns. We are proud to say that Farmington was the only small town from Michigan to make this list.


This website provides valuable and up-to-date information on our community. However, should you need more information or have a desire to get involved on one of our volunteer boards, commissions, or events groups please feel free to contact our staff directly.

Welcome to the City of Farmington!


Steven G. Schneemann, Mayor
City of Farmington
