America's Best Communities Quarterfinalist


In the fall of 2014, Imlay City teamed up with Attica Township and Imlay Township to participate in the Frontier Communication’s “America’s Best Communities” contest.  The Imlay Team received a $50,000 grant in May of 2015 when it was selected as one of the top 50 communities from 350 contestants. The grant money was used to develop a Revitalization Plan that has laid the foundation for future economic and cultural growth for our region. Copies of the Revitalization Plan, along with conceptual renderings, are available at the City and Townships’ offices, at both branches of the Ruth Hughes Library and by clicking on the link found below. Although the Imlay community did not advance to the final round of the competition, the experience was truly amazing and Imlay City, Attica Township and Imlay Township are truly one of America’s Best Communities!
