Greetings from the Mayor
Welcome to Rochester Hills!
On behalf of our entire city staff and 70,000 residents, I want to welcome you to our city. I am confident you will enjoy Rochester Hills.

Unique & Charming
Rochester Hills is the jewel of Oakland County and is unique in Southeast Michigan. We take great pride in being a top-notch, family oriented bedroom community. Take a drive, or better yet, a bike ride through any of our tree-lined subdivisions and you will see that families are what make our community great. Whether it's playing ball in the front yard, or talking with neighbors in the back yard, you cannot help but be swept up in our towns' friendliness and charm. Summer evenings in Rochester Hills are my favorite time of the year, and although it has not been proven, I am confident that calories can actually be inhaled as the smell of barbecues waft throughout the community.

Economic Excellence
Rochester Hills is blessed to have a diverse economic base supporting our diverse population. We have excellent shopping opportunities for every possible purchase inclination as well as some of the best dining in all of Michigan. Our businesses are community conscious and often complement our midwestern values. World-class organizations like the Older Persons Commission and the Rochester Avon Recreation Authority sponsor countless activities for our residents. We are also home to Oakland University and Rochester College, which offer extensive educational and entertainment opportunities as well.
Rochester Hills is perhaps best known for its parks, trails and recreational offerings. Take a swim or rent a canoe in Spencer Park. Catch a soccer game, use the batting cages or roller blade on our in-line hockey courts in Borden Park. Enjoy a bike race at Michigan's only outdoor Velodrome in Bloomer Park. Break out your best lures for some great river fishing in the Paint Creek and Clinton Rivers. Hike or bike down the river trails to view some of the most scenic vistas in Southeast Michigan!!

Express Your Thoughts
After you have experienced some of what our community has to offer, come in and let me know what you think. We are thrilled to have you here and hope you will come to love our city as much as we do.

Bryan K. Barnett, Mayor
