The Howell State Street Reconstuction Project
Thank you for your patience while visiting our award-winning down-town and local businesses during construction.Read More »
The construction you see is part of a $2.2 million dollar project made possible by 90% in funding support through the State of Michigan Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) match program. That’s right 90% of this cost is not from City Taxes!!!!
We are proud to have received this grant funding through Howell Main Street Inc. after winning the 2018 Great American Main Street Award (GAMSA), as well as the hard work of our city leaders and city staff!
