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.
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.
