Pontiac at the tipping point of a new resurgence.

It's a city rich in history, coming up on its 200th anniversary as Michigan's first inland city. What started as a mill town evolved into a linchpin for General Motors, The city, now arising from emergency management, is reinventing itself for its next act.
 
Dedicated longtime residents and new neighbors are working together to make the city's comeback a reality. Downtown you'll find an emerging art, food and craft beer scene alongside new small businesses and mid-size tech companies setting up shop. 
 
In the neighborhoods, you'll find something for everyone; stately historic homes, affordable housing opportunities and solid neighborhoods with strong grassroots engagement.
 
Surrounded by some of Oakland County's wealthiest suburbs, it's a city in its own right, and one many are taking a chance on.
