Romulus—Our Community, Our Future Nearly a thousand people participated in the visioning process. These folks were instrumental in creating a common vision for the future of Romulus. Beginning in July 2022 through January 2023, the engagement process included community surveys, five focus group sessions, and a think tank workshop. This engagement process was designed to provide an open, inclusive, and transparent platform for community members to help create a shared vision for Romulus, looking out to 2030.

“I was born and raised here. I work here. The best thing is even with an airport in the middle of it, Romulus to me feels rural. It is located in an area that makes it a reasonable drive to multiple places, like downtown Detroit, Ann Arbor, Novi, down river area. It is also so convenient for air travel.” COMMUNITY SURVEY RESPONDENT
