Welcome to Romulus the Home of Opportunity!
As a lifelong resident of Romulus, I am proud to have served as Mayor since 2013. Over the last several years, we have increased economic development, doubled down on our commitment to public safety, and invested in significant infrastructural improvements.
We have also implemented a customer service approach for you-our valued patrons and have created a solutions-oriented culture in all city departments. Our team of dedicated employees work together to deliver outstanding professional services. In recent years, we have taken proven solutions from the private sector and transferred them to the public sector, reaping outstanding successes and benefits for the City of Romulus.
We want everyone-residents, businesses and visitors to be proud of our City's dedication to creating a safe and comfortable place to live, work and play. Our residents support our police and fire departments and our police and fire personnel care deeply about our residents. Our public safety leaders work every day to maintain that trust and respect through action, including following best practices, seeking out accreditations, participating in ongoing training, and maintaining transparency with residents and stakeholders.
In 2018, residents showed their support for public safety by passing a Fire and Police millage, allowing for enhancements to our City's Emergency Services. As a result, we were able to reopen Fire Station Number 2 located at the corner of Ecorse and Middlebelt Roads, which is staffed 24/7, allowing for enhanced response times. The Police Department added dispatch staffing and hardware upgrades to the 911 center to better serve those who live and work in the city. These projects were born out of a need to meet increased demand for services as Romulus continues to attract residents and businesses.
We're also a great place to call home for large-scale organizations. Major companies like Amazon, Kroger, and Penske chose Romulus as a place to do business-bringing with them a projected 2,150 jobs combined because of the City's standing as the region's global logistics hub. As the City looks to the future, we remain committed to increasing convenience and providing a range of retail options for residents. The City of Romulus plans to continue to add new retailers to its growing list of community partners and suppliers.
Attracting and retaining business partners in Romulus equates to jobs and a boost to the local economy for all of us. For that reason, we were pleased to complete more square footage development than any other city in Wayne County in both 2017 and 2018 even exceeding the city of Detroit. In fact, Romulus had the most development of any city in the seven-county region, comprised of Wayne, Macomb, Oakland, Monroe, Livingston, Washtenaw, and St. Clair Counties. There is also residential construction underway throughout the City of Romulus. We're just getting started, and we are glad you will be a part of the action as we move forward.
Please take the time to check out our City website, Facebook page, and YouTube Channel. As we continue to see progress across the City, we will do our very best to keep you updated and informed. Thank you for choosing to call the City of Romulus your home. If I, or my staff, can be of assistance at any time, please do not hesitate to contact my office.
