A knowledgeable and accessible team of professionals guiding the growth and enhancement of Davison Township

 

The Economic Development committee for Davison Township is a concerted effort on the part of the township board to influence the direction of private sector investments toward opportunities that can lead to sustained economic growth within the township. Sustained economic growth provides sufficient incomes for the local labor force, profitable business opportunities for employers and tax revenues for maintaining an infrastructure to support this continued growth.
