Welcome to Downtown Milan

Nestled alongside Ford Lake, our downtown evokes all the best of small-town life. Our locally owned businesses truly define customer service, while our vibrant events bring our home to life. We invite you to explore this amazing place, learn about our vision, and become a part of our future.

There are plenty of communities that are planning. In Milan, we are doing.

You owe it to yourself to discover downtown Milan. It’s Happening!

The mission of Milan Main Street (DDA) is to restore vitality to our downtown through community efforts including volunteers, business and property owners, and public and private partnerships. 

Milan is one of less than 30 communities in the state of Michigan to be recognized as part of the Michigan Main Street program. The Main Street program utilizes a Four Point Approach that includes Design, Promotions, Organization, and Economic Vitality.

All of the committees and the staff of Milan Main Street/DDA function under a governing board of city officials, business owners and appointed members of the local community.
