Learn About the Golden Age of the Automobile

By 1915, the vast majority of popular car brands were from Detroit…the Motor City was born.

Detroit car brands provided a car for any budget and any style; building fast, luxurious, dependable, and inexpensive cars that “put America on wheels.” Bailey Sisoy Isgro, Detroit History Tours, will cover this history from automotive legends like Henry Ford, Horace and John Dodge, and Ransom E. Olds, to the lesser known geniuses who added horsepower and designed dream cars.

Attend Birmingham N.O.W. Info Session

Residents and business owners are invited to learn more about the Birmingham North Old Woodward Project at an information session planned for Tuesday, July 16, at 6:30 p.m. at the Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center located at 1516 S. Cranbrook Rd. in Birmingham. All are welcome to attend.

Later this summer, on Tuesday, August 6, 2019, Birmingham residents will be asked to consider a ballot proposal that would fund the reconstruction of the aging North Old Woodward parking structure and extend Bates Street from Willits to Old Woodward. The cost to repay the debt on the general obligation bonds, not to exceed $57.4 million, will come from the Enterprise Parking Fund which consists of user fees paid to the parking system. Birmingham residents will not be charged the cost to repay the bond debt for the parking structure and street extension. There is no tax increase to Birmingham residents if the bond is approved.

Facts pertaining to the Birmingham N.O.W. project can be found on the City website at There, you will find frequently asked questions as well as videos and other information about the project.
