Flint is the fifth largest city in Michigan. Its history reflects the ups and downs of the automotive industry. As automotive influence has retreated Flint has seen the rise of heath care and education. It is home to the University of Michigan – Flint and Kettering University, both noted for outstanding research. Mott Community College is also located here. Accession Genesys Heath System, McLaren Health Care and Hurley Medical Center are the primary life science resources for the community. I-75 and US-23 form the primary north/south transportation corridors and I-69 the east/west axis. These transportation connections are key assets in Flint’s re-redevelopment. Just west of downtown is the campus of the Flint Cultural. Also check out the Flint Farmers’ Market.

When you think of Fenton Township you need to think water. With 58 lakes within a 10-mile radius, including Seven Lakes State Park, residents enjoy the sports and recreation of an outdoor paradise. This abundance of nature led to the innovative Southern Lakes Regional Parks & Recreation District, which is a partnership between the cities of Linden and Fenton, Fenton Township and the community school systems. The district has a year-round program of indoor and outdoor activities for all area residents. Recent residential development has provided a diverse inventory of single-family homes, apartments and condominium developments.
