Live, Work and Play in Battle Creek
For Battle Creek to thrive, we all need to embrace what makes our community special and to nurture a culture that celebrates our city.
Our goal is to create a culture of vitality that supports job growth and talent development by positioning Battle Creek as a place where people choose to live, work, and play.
To accomplish this goal, we are working hard to:
Reinvigorate the physical and built environment of our city
Promote Battle Creek to those who do not live, work and play here
Create an active and lively downtown
Ensure we have safe neighborhoods
Host many community-wide events.
