Novi is still one of the fastest growing cities in Southeastern Michigan. There are still some large vacant parcels to build subdivisions on. Novi was declared as a city in 1969 after the approval of a city charter on February 18, 1969 by the Village of Novi voters. Where the name Novi came from there is no absolute answer. It was a small city back in 1969. The construction of Twelve Oaks Mall in the 1970s made the city a major shopping destination to in and out of town tourists. Twelve Oaks Mall and the surrounding shopping area draws Metro Detroiters from over 30 minutes away. The residential building boom started in the 1980’s and the city grew tremendously until about 2006. During the mortgage meltdown the building slowed, but now has picked up again. The growth has led to substantial increases in the city’s population, as well as commercial and industrial developments in the city. Novi was ranked 48 on Money magazine’s list of the Top 100 Best Places to live in 2008. I would recommend anybody moving to Detroit to live here.

The city has no true downtown area though many would agree that the Novi Rd/Grand River area is where all the action takes place. This is the Mega shopping area in the community. Here you will find so many different types of restaurants, banks, and stores like tire stores, and other construction equipment places. Many of my past Michigan relocation clients worry about what stores are her, will they be able to find what they need or what they are used to in the city they are moving to. If you cannot find it in Novi you will be able to find it in one of the other nearby cities. If you would like a Novi relocation guide email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
