The housing mixture includes single-family residences, condominiums, and multi-family complexes. Our "walk to" downtown boasts of old-fashioned street lamps, benches, specialty shops, galleries, theaters, restaurants, businesses, and preserved landmarks...


August Millage Vote Seeks Increased Road Repair Funding

The Northville City Council has authorized an August 4th millage proposal which would provide an additional $753,000 annually for road and street improvements. The 2.25 mill increase would cost the average Northville homeowner an additional $280 per year (based on a cash value of $250,000, or, a taxable value of $125,000). The funds from this new millage, combined with the existing 1.7542* mill road and street levy, would increase the annual budget for street resurfacing and reconstruction from $350,000 to over $1.1 million.

*Reduced from 1.92 due to Headlee

The “Headlee Amendment” has rolled back the City’s 20 mill tax limit to 15.8 mills. Therefore, the City must ask for a “Headlee Override” in order to levy the proposed 2.25 mill increase. The Headlee Override questions cannot change the original purpose of the millage. In order to restrict the usage of these new funds to roads and streets, the City Council resolution authorizing this millage states that these funds “will be used exclusively to provide funds for road and street improvements.” In addition, Council will be adopting an ordinance, prior to the election, which restricts usage of these funds to roads and streets.


Shall the limitation on the amount of taxes which may be imposed on taxable property in the City of Northville, Counties of Wayne and Oakland, Michigan be increased by 2.25 mills ($2.25 per thousand dollars of taxable value) for a period of fifteen (15) years, 2016 through 2030, as new additional millage in excess of the limitation imposed by Michigan Compiled Laws section 211.34d, to partially restore City Charter millage authorization previously approved by the electors as reduced by operation of the Headlee Amendment, to provide funds for general operating purposes? It is estimated that 2.25 mills would raise approximately $753,000 when first levied in 2016.
