Welcome to Clare Sign Photo by Michigan Municipal League
With more than 500 communities as its members, the Michigan Municipal League is constantly traveling throughout the state for various seminars, meetings, activities and gatherings. We thought it would be fun to document some of our travels in this series of images we’re calling city sights, signs and banners. Check out these many images and see if there’s something you recognize. So far we have images from the following communities: Alpena, Ann Arbor, Au Gres, Charleviox, Chelsea, Clare, Detroit, Dexter, Durand, East Lansing-Michigan State University, East Tawas, Eastpointe, Fairview, Fenton, Flint, Fremont, Greenville, Grand Blanc, Grayling, Hamtramck, Hamtramck Disneyland, Harrisville, Holland, Holly, Kalamazoo-Western Michigan University, Kalkaska, , Lansing, Lapeer, Lathrup Village, Linden, Ludington, Mancelona, Marine City, Marysville, Milford, Mt. Pleasant-Central Michigan University, Muskegon, Mio, Montague, New Buffalo, Northville, Omer, Oscoda, Petoskey, Rose City, St. Clair, St. Ignace, St. Joseph, Standish, Tawas City, West Branch, Whitehall and Zeeland. If you have a “welcome to” sign or a city sign of some sort and would like to include them in this collection just email them to Matt Bach at the Michigan Municipal League at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll be happy to add them to this set. For more about the Michigan Municipal League and what we do go to mml.org. Many of these communities will be represented at the League's annual Convention Oct. 5-7, 2011 taking place in Grand Rapids during ArtPrize. For Convention details go to tour.mml.org (or on twitter at @mmleague or #mmltour). These communities also illustrate why place matters in helping Michigan's economic turnaround.
