I have a question about Clinton Township and Mt.Clemens. From what I understand, Clinton township was Mt Clemens before they did the name change to Clinton Twp. So why did they even change the name? I liked the old name better.
And is that area really that bad? I was there last Thanksgiving and it seemed fine to me. Nice and quaint small town america.

Isn't Clinton Twsp just the township that surrounds a lot of Mt. Clemens, along with Harrison Twsp...

As for the singles scene, you would definately be happier in the Royal Oak/Ferndale area, much more oriented towards the single life whereas east-central macomb is more family oriented and spread-out. Downtown Detroit is another possible option, but is unfortunately surrounded by some pretty rough neighborhoods!

I think brikag is an aviation buff and Chicago could be either ORD/CUBS (Northside) or MDW/SOX (Southside)!
Hey GLD,
Traveled extensively for ten years. My partner is so amazed that I know th airport codes from around the US and the world. He found a list and quizzes me every once in awhile. He hates it when I'm right.

ps
ORD all the way!

I think it changed in the early 90's. We used to live in Eastpointe. EP was called East Detroit (even though it was north of DTW). East Detroit changed it to EP b/c they didn't want the name Detroit in the name and wanted the word Pointe. Unlike Grosse Pointe, it didn't help the EP reputation. "Grosse" attempt!

That's correct. They parted ways in the 90's for the same reason of East Pointe. Plus, Clinton Township was getting over populated and the city councils wanted more money for their township. It seems to be the driving force any way. The public offices for CT were behind our subdivision seperated by a park. Great Neighborhood!

So would Mount Clemens and Clinton Township generally be considered desirable, undesirable, or just mediocre/average?

What about Harrison Township?

Thanks!

Both are desireablee if you want to start a family. Very good neighborhoods for either on of them. But if you're looking for the single life type of atmosphere, then Royal Oak or Ferndale!
