LIVONIA SUMMER/FALL NEWS N Lmivonials Economy Livonia's economic rebound is in full farce this year We're happy to see home values begin to rebound this year. When it comes to jobs, the lat- est jobless rate for Livonia shows 4.217o unemployment, well below the jobless rate in our region, state or nation. Meanwhile, total vacancy in Livonia's industrial market is about 7.7%, which is a new 10-year low for vacant space. The vacancy rate in Livonia for office and indus- trial flex markets remain soft at about 15%. Across Livonia,businesses are drawing up blueprints,backhoes are moving dirt, beams are going up and finishing touches are being added. • Plans are moving forward for Michigan's second Dave & Buster's, a 40,000-square-foot restaurant and amusement complex (1-275 and Seven Mlle), which should be an exciting new addition to Livonia"s entertainment opportunities. • The new Menards home improvement and lumber store growing on the west side of Middlebelt, north of the railroad viaduct, will open later this i summer. In addition, one or two new full-service restaurants are looking at building near Menards. • There are few sites that generate more questions than the former Frank's Nursery at Five Mile and Levan. We can happily report the entire strip mall will be torn down and a new 40,000-square- foot medical office constructed for Mendelson Orthopedics. Meanwhile, south and east of that corner, Masri Orthodontics is building a two-story medical building on Levan. The list of businesses that are renovating or moving to expand is highlighted by Bank's Vacuum, Bill & Rod's Appli- ance, Tennyson Chevrolet, and Home Instead Senior Care.

These examples are the tip of the iceberg. B'ig Strod Shows I Livonia remains a great place to Iive,work, learn and play spe- cifically because of the exceptional public safety, quality public ser- i t vices, great location, plentiful parks, well-maintained streets, and quality , ' • _ schools, health care, institutions of education and businesses. Masri Orthodontics is constricting a new medical office buil ing on Levan near Five Mils_ Free outside water meter reading device offered Good news? For the first time, the City of Livonia is able to offer business and residential water customers a time-saving outside meter reading device at no additional cost to the custom r. That is good news because outside meter reading devices are more convenient for customers and increase efficiency and decrease costs for the Livonia Water system. These outside meter reading devices will help ensure that customer readings are done in a timely and accurate manner. The device eliminates the inconvenience of residents letting a meter reader into their home or business for normal quarterly reads, or for residents to read their own meter and send the billing department an owner-read card. It will also help eliminate the need for an estimate to be used for billing purposes. If you have an inside water meter, you can schedule an appointment for installation of an outside meter reading device by calling the Department of Public Services at (734)466-2655. Someone must be at the house or business during installation, which takes about an hour. - A All invited to help Fallen Heroes project Donations are being accepted from residents and businesses interested in contributing to Livonia's Fallen Heroes Monument at Larry Nehasil Park,being constructed at the former Civic Center Park just west of City Hall. Contributors may purchase engraved brick pavers or donate toward numerous other im- provements planned to honor the memory of Livonia's Public Safety Officers who have lost their lives in service to the community. To purchase a paver or donate contact Donna Nehasil at (734) 536-7865. ,r Livonia... Working Together for a Brighter Future Is your bicycle ready for SUMMER RIIN Information and Tips from Livonia Fire & Rescue hen out biking during the nicer months ahead, make sure you take a few moments out to check out your bicycles. Before riding each time, give your bikes the quick ABC check,which includes checking the air in the tires,the brakes and that the chain is correctly lined up on the I sprockets. Adjust your seat height for yourself and family members each season, and adjust your bike helmets as well. When possible,try to avoid busy streets and take rides through the subdivisions with sidewalks instead. You should have reflectors on your bikes, and if you must ride after dark, take special precaution with a light.

Livonia Housing Commission & Livonia Public Schools Building Trades Partnership Program It has been the pleasure of the Livonia Housing Commission—Office of Community Development to partner with the Livonia Public Schools Building Trades program regarding housing rehabilitation projects. The City provides the home, the students provide the labor for building rehab and trade contractors complete the job where necessary. On this particular home,the fourth in our partnership, some donations were made to the program by community businesses. Specifically, Lowe's secured paint through Valspar and Lee's Wholesale provided donations relative to the vinyl siding. Thank you to our community supporters! Under the supervision of Community Development and Livonia Public Schools Building Trades Program staff,the students have been able to learn basic skills of the construction trades through hands-on participation with projects such as roofing, siding, and the installation of drywall, hardwood flooring, ceramic tiles, interior doors,windows, moldings, and painting. The Livonia Housing Commission is proud to provide these field experience projects which place the students in real-world construction settings allowing them the opportunity to see the realities of day-to-day life in the building trades. We look forward to a continued relationship with the Livonia Career Technical Center Building Trades Program. n LIVONIA SUMMER/FALL NEWS Rats And Vermin- -m A New Scoue?
