City Becomes a Certified Redevelopment Ready Community

As a Certified Redevelopment Ready Community (RRC), the City of Ionia has completed the steps put in place by the Michigan Economic Development Corporation to become a vibrant and competitive place for development opportunities. This involved reviewing processes inhibiting development, identifying assets, and master planning with public input.

Recently completed economic development-based focused studies help show the opportunities available in Ionia. Check the documents and links tabs on this page to access these studies.
