A Great Place to Live

In March 2011, Marquette, Michigan, was named one of the top micropolitans by Site Selection magazine. The U.S. Census Bureau defines a micropolitan area as a rural county whose largest city does not exceed a population of 50,000. Five communities, including Marquette, Michigan, tied for the number 20 spot, out of a total of 576 micropolitan areas in the nation.

Outdoor Life magazine ranked Marquette, Michigan, in the top 10% of their "Top 200 Towns for Sportsmen" in their May 2011 issue. The magazine showcased towns that not only offer excellent opportunities for hunting and fishing, but also provide good paying jobs, a reasonable cost of living, low population density, good schools, and great overall quality of life.

Development Potential
