Highlighting economic development in Novi
December 2019
A salute to Novi's veterans
The City of Novi is celebrating its 50th Anniversary this year and each month we are releasing a new video highlighting a part of Novi's history. This 11th video highlights our veterans and tells the story of their sacrifice.

We are still looking for businesses to be featured on Business Avenue. If you want to be featured on an upcoming episode that airs on Novi Television, YouTube and cityofnovi.org, shoot us an email at novibusiness@cityofnovi.org to set up a time that works for you. Our Studio No.VI team will do the rest!
