Within Shelby Township's borders, more than 73,000 residents enjoy one of the highest standards of living in all of the metro Detroit region. 

Shelby Township’s appreciation for and abundance of green spaces extends from its vast public parks to its residential neighborhoods. The township’s  neighborhoods are some of the most desirable in Macomb County, and their well-manicured, spacious lots and yards contribute to the Township’s place among the highest median home values in Macomb County.

A mix of new developments and established neighborhoods, as well as options in upscale apartments and condominiums, offers a diversified Shelby Township as a residential destination. Welcoming neighborhoods can be found throughout the township and all are close to recreation and entertainment amenities. A consistent stream of people moving into the township  speaks to the community's status as as a destination in metro Detroit that is being consistently enhanced. 

The combination of these factors and first-rate public schools constantly improves Shelby Township's allure to families and professional talent, including entrepreneurs, professionals and future business leaders. Community assets such as more than 1,200 acres of development township parks, Stony Creek Metropark, the Macomb Orchard Trail, Cherry Creek Golf Club and access to the Clinton River and a growing entertainment scene gives residents, new and old, opportunities to take root and grow with Shelby Township.
