Welcome to the City of Romulus!
Goddard Road Construction Update
The Goddard Road Reconstruction Project started July 8, 2014; this project will be done in two construction seasons. The portion from the railroad tracks (east of Shook) to Wayne Road will occur during the current 2014 construction season. The section from the railroad tracks west (downtown) to Romaine will be constructed in the 2015 construction season. The traffic flow into the downtown will be one way east to west on Goddard Road from Wayne Road. The downtown businesses will be open, please follow the detour signs.
Goddard Road from Wayne Road currently has the east bound and left turn lanes removed from Wayne Road to Hunt Street. The CSX Railroad is also currently under construction at the CSX Railroad Crossing, with full road closure at the railroad tracks until July 30th, 2014. The roadway will be reopened for west bound traffic after the CSX railroad crossing has been completed. The contractor began the base preparations for the pavement section during the week of July 21st, 2014.

Community participation invited to
“Envision Romulus” Vision Plan
Mayor LeRoy D. Burcroff is inviting the community to participate in a process to create a vision plan for the future of the city called “Envision Romulus.”
Community members were invited to “help shape the future of Romulus” during a Community Summit on June 4, at the Romulus Athletic Center.
The planning process will allow residents, business owners, school officials, clergy members, civic leaders and others to work side by side with city officials to create a vision that will lead to making sound decisions on planning, land use and policy making in the city.
A visioning plan looks at the potential of a community by bringing together people from all walks to talk about their ideas and aspirations for the future. The aspirations are unrestrained and can focus on anything from the environment, economic development, infrastructure, education, culture, recreation and any other issue that is important to those who live, work and play in the community.
“One thing that is unique about Romulus is that we have a large amount of undeveloped land – commercial, industrial and residential,” the Mayor said. “I’ve been passionate that we need a vision to help plan our community’s future. It’s so important to get everybody included in the process of shaping the community. This isn’t Burcroff’s vision; it’s the community’s vision.”
“In my experience, I have been through a visioning process in the private sector as well as with my church,” Mayor Burcroff said. “The visioning process with a community is similar. We want to include community input and have people rally behind the collaborative efforts of all.”
“When I came into office as Mayor, it was a critical time for our community,” Mayor Burcroff said. “These are important economic times. I know where we’ve been and where we are, but I need to make sure we have a clear pulse of where the community wants us to be going forward.”
Residents will be asked such questions as “what are your ideas for the future” and “what kind of community do you want to be part of.”
Mayor Burcroff said a steering committee is working with OHM Advisors, an integrated engineering, architecture and planning firm based in Livonia that has more than 50 years of public and private-sector expertise, forward thinking and insightful counsel.
Information and data will be gathered from prior planning studies, the U.S. Census, mapping sources and community meetings and forums. OHM also will survey people inside and outside of Romulus to gage the city’s reputation, strengths, weaknesses and opportunities. The survey results will be used to guide the visioning process as well.
“Once we come out of the process – what’s really important – is that this will shape us going forward,” Mayor Burcroff said. “This will influence our master plan, our recreation plan and our capital improvement plan. This will be our vision of where our city wants to go. My job is to make sure people are rallying around the vision and setting its course. This is not a vision that will be in a document that will sit on a shelf somewhere. This will be a living, breathing process that will shape our future for many years to come.”
In addition to community meetings, a project website has been created to allow residents to stay up to date on the project and share their ideas regarding the future of Romulus. The webpage can be found at www.envisionromulus.com.
