Small suburban community with a diverse community of local businesses and downtown redevelopment efforts undderway.
Center Line is a small, close-knit community with a low crime rate, affordable homes, large parks and great schools. Center Line is mostly composed of neighborhoods, but the city has cool architectural elements, like St. Clement Church built before 1854 and Kramer Homes Cooperative designed by famous architect Eero Saarinen. Center Line is also home to a diverse business community with world headquarters for international companies Mopar, Whitlam Group and Sodecia as well as long-time small businesses like Vern Haney’s restaurant and Dealer’s Discount Crafts.
In the last several years, community leaders have undertaken a redevelopment effort around Center Line’s downtown and surrounding areas. Plans include urban forestry and green infrastructure programs, the creation of a walkable downtown with more shops, restaurants and community events.
