Mayor's Welcome

Sara-BowmanNearly 200 years ago, an intrepid group of farmers settled what is today the City of Farmington. Since then, we have grown into a modern, welcoming, diverse population of residents and business owners who share a focus on building on the strengths of our two centuries of history. I, and my fellow City Council members, invite you to come and experience Farmington. You will find a vibrant business district, exceptional parks, historic and contemporary homes, award-winning schools and libraries, and a full range of services and programs. They’re all supported by a solid organization of city administrators, professional experts, trained city services crews, and private volunteer citizens.

Farmington lies on Grand River Avenue, an arrow-straight road that starts in downtown Detroit and passes through to the State Capital in Lansing. Farmington remains a crossroad surrounded by major international corporations, peaceful neighborhoods, boutique shops and restaurants, and, most importantly, people from all over the world living and working side-by-side in an environment that celebrates their heritages.
At its heart, Farmington is a vibrant mix of people anxious to combine their strengths and skills for the common good. From weekly swing-dancing under the Riley Pavilion, an award winning farmers market, to holiday parades, competitive sports leagues that attract all ages, to nicely maintained historic homes that trace their roots back to the beginning, our City takes pride in our ability to honor our past while keeping a realistic perspective on our future.
