We LOVE downtown Dundee and we know you do to! There is a program that helps communities like ours make the most of their downtown. It is all about retaining small town values and historic charm while strengthening the vitality of the businesses in the commercial district. And it is driven BY THE COMMUNITY – a partnership between residents, business owners, and the village.
Our goal is to create a close-knit community that sees the heart of Dundee as their center of activity and commerce. Make downtown Dundee your third place.*
The community of Dundee is working hard to get accepted to the Select Level of the Michigan Main Street Program. We want you to join our efforts on this quest. There are many different ways you can help.
*Home and work are your first and second place to be. Where else will you spend your time, money, and energy?
