City of Litchfield



The City of Litchfield has many extraordinary features one might find in a small southern Michigan city. Litchfield has established a market of nearly 50 businesses, many of which are located in the downtown area and in an Industrial Park to the south of the city.

Litchfield is the intersection of two State Highways, M-49 and M-99 and centered between M-60, U.S. 12 and I-69 and is located in Hillsdale county, the only Michigan county bordering both Ohio and Indiana.

Litchfield’s enjoyable quality of life, exceptional recreational opportunities and excellent business climate provide the perfect balance for families and businesses to grow and prosper.

Industrial Park
At present, there are approximately 2,200 people employed by the various firms located in the industrial park. There are still undeveloped parcels in the park to accommodate the entry for more business enterprises into the industrial park. A successful Tax Increment Finance Authority (TIFA) operated within the City to promote economic development in the Industrial Park area. A new 74 acre parcel was recently purchased to the south of the current industrial park for future development and park expansion.

The City of Litchfield has room for commercial development and currently has vacant office space into which prospective businesses could occupy immediately. With the recent organization of a Downtown Development Authority (DDA) , new developments and beautification projects are in the process.
