Balancing Work and Play for Residents
Clinton Township leaders continue to work toward creating an ideal mix of retail, industrial and residential areas to support Township growth, tax base, and quality of living. For example, the Clinton Township Gratiot Downtown Development Authority (DDA) counts more than 300 business members, and the high-profile Gratiot Avenue corridor carries more than 70,000 vehicles daily.
Additionally, Clinton Township is home to The Mall at Partridge Creek, an open-air shopping mall with 90 stores in a pet-friendly environment. Clinton Township does not have a traditional downtown, and in many ways, The Mall at Partridge Creek fills the role of Clinton Township’s downtown or “100” spot.
Thanks to the popularity of the Clinton River and an extensive park system, the Township continues to draw new visitors and new residents. The three major branches of the river join inside township borders offering outdoor enthusiasts miles of waterway to kayak, canoe, and fish. Native plant species and outdoor activities can be enjoyed at the Township’s twelve park locations.
Outdoor pursuits are prevalent throughout Clinton Township, and recreation offerings occur throughout the year. There is a sledding hill and dedicated dog park on the grounds of the Civic Center at:
40700 Romeo Plank Road
Clinton Township, MI 48038
The 15,000-square-foot Senior Adult Life Center, which offers arts and crafts, exercise and fitness, and travel programs, is also located at the Civic Center. Right next door is the main branch of the Clinton-Macomb Public Library, which boasts three convenient locations, and is one of the largest libraries in Macomb County. The Civic Center is also home to numerous soccer and baseball fields and the new state-of-the-art pickleball courts.
Strong School Systems
A total of five K-12 school districts serve township residents with programs for students at all education levels, from highly gifted to those with special needs. There are more than 14,000 students enrolled in a wide array of degree programs at the Clinton Township campus of Macomb Community College (MCC). In addition, MCC’s University Center has many onsite satellite programs available, one example being The Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine.
