Highlighting economic development in Novi
May 2019
The story on how Novi got its name...sort of
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 fourth video gives you a little insight into how Novi got its name. There are several stories out there, but the fun part is no one knows for sure.

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!
