City of Rochester Hills Although Rochester Hills is focused on the future, its roots go back to 1835 when Avon Township was organized. In 1978 Avon became a Charter Township and in 1984 its residents voted to become the Home Rule City of Rochester Hills. Today, Rochester Hills is one of the jewels of Oakland County. It offers quality city services and infrastructure, proximity to major roadways, access to diverse and advanced fiber optic networks, the research and development firepower of a major university, a Michigan SmartZone and a dedicated planning and development department. Rochester Hills features a quality of life focused on people and draws its unique personality from the diversity of its residents. Rochester Hills is a family oriented community, which is clearly evident in its many neighborhoods. It is also evident in the quality of education and recreation programs that are available. The award winning Rochester and Avondale Community Schools provide K-12 education for Rochester Hills. Rochester University, Oakland University and Oakland Community College are either located in the city or just outside the city. With nearly 1,000 acres of parkland, Rochester Hills offers the opportunity for relaxation and recreation few others can match. The Paint Creek and Clinton River Trails wind through the community, providing hiking, jogging, bike riding and in specific areas – horseback riding. Organizations like the Older Persons Commission and the Rochester Avon Recreation Authority sponsor countless activities and the Rochester Hills Museum at Van HoosenFarm, Meadow Brook Hall, Meadow Brook Music Festival, Yates Cider Mill, the Rochester Hills Public Library and other cultural assets enrich the community. A wide variety of industries have chosen Rochester Hills as their home.
