Important Community Reminders

2021 Art in the Rough Event Cancelled

Regrettably, the DDA and its board are canceling our 2021 Art in the Rough event.
The rise in COVID-19 cases has affected many of our artists, musicians and volunteers, and participation dropped too low. We are saddened by this news… Cancelling is the best course of action at this time, and now we are looking forward to a bigger and more fabulous Art in the Rough in 2022.
Apologies and best wishes to everyone!


Imlay City Offices are once again open to public foot traffic.

Please wear your mask if you are medically able when you enter our offices. If you are uncomfortable entering our offices to pay your bills or drop off applications, a drop box is located at the front of the building that is checked/emptied throughout the work day. Feel free to utilize all available options. Thank you!

Please call Imlay City Hall with any questions or concerns at (810) 724-2135.





The next Imlay City Downtown Development Authority Board Meeting is scheduled for Monday, September 13th, 2021. These meetings take place in Imlay City Hall, 150 N. Main St., at 5:35 p.m. If there is any changes or cancellations to this meeting date, updates will be posted here. Thank you!
