The City provides full-time police and fire protection and maintains public water and sewer facilities with the County responsible for treatment and transfer. Like many American communities, Swartz Creek remained largely agricultural for most of its history. With the emergence of the area’s auto industry the community transformed into a residential suburb offering a number of housing styles at varying price points. Miller Road is the main highway running through town, which takes residents to the various shopping areas nearby.

Village of Goodrich

Goodrich is located in Atlas Township, which is in the southeast corner of Genesee County. So close to the County’s borders, residents regularly find themselves attending events in either Lapeer or northern Oakland County. The village is approximately 2.4 square miles and takes great pride in the top-notch Goodrich Area Schools. This picturesque town is situated on a millpond that is part of Kearsley Creek. The millpond dam is located under the main street bridge. Goodrich draws its historical look from the several well-preserved turn-of-the-century style buildings.

Linden

Linden is located in the southern tier of Genesee County near the headwaters of the Shiawassee River. Although Linden has retained its small town charm through the preservation of its scenic downtown area, including the historic Linden Mills, it’s also been designated a “cool city” by the State of Michigan. The downtown area boasts a number of small shops and several restaurants. Free concerts and outdoor movies are held by the historic mill and city gazebo. Side streets leading away from city center take you to cozy neighborhoods of well-maintained homes. Newer developments dot the surrounding area taking advantage of the nearby lakes. Linden also has the Linden Community Schools, which is recognized as one of the top school districts in the county.
