Highlighting economic development in Novi
July 2019
The story of the Walled Lake Casino
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 sixth video takes you over to Walled Lake where summers were spent swimming, riding amusement park rides and dancing to the hottest music.

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!

Work underway at 12 Mile & Novi Road intersection
The intersection at 12 Mile and Novi roads has been removed and new concrete is being poured.

We are still in Stage 1 of the project, which means one outside lane of 12 Mile will be open in each direction and only right turns will be allowed from southbound and northbound Novi Road.

Once Stage 2 begins on July 22, only one inside lane of 12 Mile will be open in each direction. Novi Road will be completely closed north and south of 12 Mile Road.
