TROY — The City of Troy’s Web site,, has been redesigned to make navigation easier for residents, businesses and visitors. Included are new tabs at the top of the home page — Live Here, Work Here, Play Here, Government and Resources — as well as Calendar and Contact Us sections.

“The prominent tabs, Live Here, Work Here and Play Here highlight Troy as one of the most dynamic and livable cities in Michigan, and the country; renowned for A+ rated schools, excellent public services,” Community Affairs Director Cindy Stewart said.  “Troy is also a vibrant business and technology center, home to over 6,100 thriving businesses — everything from high tech to high finance, employing over 125,000 people. And don’t forget Troy is a community with world-class shopping, unparalleled dining, and over 900 acres of parklands, a great place to relax and have fun.”

The city says the new Web site provides information in an easy-to-navigate format. It also includes links to a YouTube channel with an archive of city council meetings, as well as additional programs produced by the Community Affairs Department including ones related to Fire and Police Safety, Veterans Day Ceremony, Historic Village Lectures and much more.

“We know people are very busy and want to find things on a Web site within a couple of clicks,” Stewart added.  “The newly designed site should make navigation simpler.”

Stewart said those with questions should contact her at (248) 524-1147 or by email at

The new site also makes navigation easier for smartphone users, and features direct phone links from the mobile site.

The site also includes a Planning and Development Department app to allow residents and other interested parties to view and comment on development applications being considered in Troy.

“This new Planning and Development Portal contains an interactive map of all projects under construction within the city,” Planning Director Brent Savidant said.  “Our intention is to provide transparency and 24/7 access to the City of Troy for all residents and others interested in our community’s planning and development process.”
