Michael Webb has served on Hazel Park City Council since 2001. In November 2017, Webb became Mayor of Hazel Park. He considers it a great honor to represent the citizens of Hazel Park.
Hazel Park is a “Friendly City” with many wonderful volunteers. Mayor Webb would like to thank all the dedicated volunteers that help this city continue to move forward, including members of the boards and commissions, Neighborhood Enrichment, Lions Club, just to name a few. In the past few years, Mayor Webb has worked with a hardworking group of volunteers to establish the Hazel Park Historical Museum. Preserving the city’s history is important.
The city is moving forward with new residential construction and rising home values. Hazel Park is attracting new residents that consider the city an affordable and safe community to live and raise families. The new commercial construction at 10 Mile and Dequindre continues to bring new jobs to the area. Some of the new businesses include LG, Amazon and Bridgewater. This is an amazing opportunity for Hazel Park. Mayor Webb is looking forward to the added new businesses and residents this attracts to Hazel Park.
Mayor Webb said, “We listen to our residents’ concerns and the roadwork is starting this spring.” Repairing the roads will start on South John R in May 2019, followed by Nine Mile, and North John R this summer. The City secured a large grant to help offset the cost of this project.
Hazel Park is experiencing a renaissance of opportunity, growth, and stability. Mayor Webb is proud of Hazel Park, and its residents, and is looking forward to what the future has in store for the community.
