Lyon Township Named 5-Star Community

Lyon Township has been named a 2017 5-Star Community by eCities.

eCities is an annual research study that examines community-level factors that influence entrepreneurship, economic development, and job growth.  The focus of this project is to learn and share the "Best Practices" to attract entrepreneurial development and create business growth.  Understanding the best practices and utilizing these concepts across Michigan will have a positive impact on the state's economic future.  

This year, the eCities team collected data on 277 communities across Michigan on many factors related to economic development, entrepreneurship, growth, and community involvement.  A panel of reviewers with various backgrounds related to entrepreneurship, development, and government examined these communities and selected those to be recognized as the top communities in Michigan.
