DTE Energy Storm Update:

As of 6:00am on Wednesday, August 27, 2014, approximately 120,000 DTE Energy customers are without electric service due to the high winds and lightning that hit southeast Michigan Tuesday evening. DTE has restored power to 45,000 customers who were affected by the storm, which included wind gusts of up to 60 m.p.h. in portions of the DTE service area.

The hardest hit area is Wayne County with 80,000 customers still without power, 4,114 of them being in Romulus.

DTE crews are working 16-hour shifts around the clock to restore service. Approximately 125 additional crews from across the Midwest will arrive today to assist in the restoration effort.

The majority of customers should be back in service by late tonight.

Strong winds caused more than 1,000 reported power lines to come down. Customers need to exercise extreme caution and assume any wire is live. Stay at least 20 feet away from any downed wire and anything it's in contact with, keep children and pets away, and call DTE Energy at (800) 477-4747 to report the downed line.

Tree-trim crews are cutting fallen limbs and clearing areas to assist repair crews. To allow the tree-trim crews to quickly get the next location where they are needed, they will leave limbs for homeowners' use or disposal rather than remove the material.

DTE Energy understands how difficult it is to be without power, and appreciates the patience of customers as we work on repairingthe damage caused by the weather.

Customers can report an outage, check on the status of an outage, and view our outage map, all from their smart phones. Customers also may call DTE energy at (800) 477-4747 to report power outages or downed lines. We encourage customers to use our mobile website at or their iPhone or Android pohone to report a power problem using the DTE Energy Outage Center app. The app is available free of charge from the Apple Store or Google Play.

Goddard Road Construction Update 

The Goddard Road Reconstruction Project started July 8, 2014; this project will be done in two construction seasons. The portion from the railroad tracks (east of Shook) to Wayne Road will occur during the current 2014 construction season. The section from the railroad tracks west (downtown) to Romaine will be constructed in the 2015 construction season. The traffic flow into the downtown will be one way east to west on Goddard Road from Wayne Road. The downtown businesses will be open, please follow the detour signs.

Goddard Road from Wayne Road currently has the east bound and left turn lanes removed from Wayne Road to Hunt Street. The CSX Railroad is also currently under construction at the CSX Railroad Crossing, with full road closure at the railroad tracks until July 30th, 2014. The roadway will be reopened for west bound traffic after the CSX railroad crossing has been completed. The contractor began the base preparations for the pavement section during the week of July 21st, 2014.

Community participation invited to

“Envision Romulus” Vision Plan

Romulus officials invite the community to participate in the next stage of “Envision Romulus”, the City’s vision plan for the future. A public open house is scheduled for 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, August 6, at the Romulus Athletic Center, 35765 Northline Road.
The open house will engage residents, the business community, school officials, clergy members, civic leaders and others in creating a vision for the city. Participants work alongside city officials to develop a vision that will respond to public sentiment and aspirations, react to changing market conditions, build on best management practices, and is mindful of current and future economic and social conditions in the community.
The vision plan is being built almost exclusively on public involvement, gathering information and consensus around a shared desired outcome for the community. To date members of the community have been asked to consider “ideas for the future” and the “kind of community they want to be part of.” Topics have included the environment, economic development, infrastructure, housing, transportation, community services, recreation and open space, and the community image and brand.
A Community Summit on June 4 attracted dozens of participants who answered questions and provided perspective regarding the future of the community. A community survey of 300 residents and 100 non-residents was also conducted to gain perspective on how the city is perceived internally and externally.
The August 6th meeting will include a presentation of the results compiled from the June Summit and community survey, as well as online feedback gained from the project website Following the presentation participants will be engaged in an interactive workshop. During the workshop a draft vision framework will be presented, and participants will have the opportunity to identify specific actions that need to be accomplished to achieve the community’s’ vision. Participants will also be asked to prioritize elements of the vision that they feel are most important to achieve their desired vision.
Project manager Aaron Domini, senior planner with OHM Advisors, a regional architecture, engineering and planning firm, said the process has provided “a fair assessment of the intuitive knowledge” of residents and other participants.
“We will use the information to shape the vision and goals and objectives,” Domini said. “The key is the community’s wants and aspirations. It’s truly the community’s plan.”
Domini called the turnout at the Community Summit “exceptional” during what was a busy time of the year for many people.
“To me, it says that the community is very interested in participating in the process and making sure voices are heard in shaping the community,” he added. “It’s also a reflection of community pride. I hope the August 6th turnout is equally as exceptional”.
