Street Improvement Bond Millage
The Infrastructure Study Group has recommended a proposal to improve 7.1 miles of city residential streets over 3 years, starting in Spring 2021.

The proposal appears on the November 3, 2020 ballot for Lathrup Village residents. The cost to the average homeowner would average $263 per year.

To help educate residents on the facts surrounding this this proposal, the City has created an informational website:

The site also has an interactive street map that will easily allow you to determine your annual cost, based upon the current taxable value of your home, should the proposal be approved by the residents.  

Informational Virtual Town Hall Meetings will take place on the following dates (click on the date for Zoom information):
