Dexter is one of the fastest growing communities in Washtenaw County. Its population more than doubled since 1990. This growth turned Dexter from a village into a city in 2014. An active downtown, numerous parks, excellent schools and a successful business environment has supported this growth. New subdivisions and condominium projects on both sides of the city have helped meet the housing demand caused by the growth. Dexter is one of the communities involved with the Border to Border (B@B) trail – a shared use path that links the open spaces of the Huron River Greenway. In 2015 the B@B was incorporated into the State of Michigan’s Iron Belle Trail.

It is also home to Washtenaw County’s second major university – Eastern Michigan University, which pretty much identifies where the funky, groovy, and innovative descriptions come into play.
