Each year, the Southfield Community Relations Department publishes an attractive wall calendar for all Southfield residents and businesses. The annual report/calendar features a wealth of municipal information, stunning photographs of Southfield, and a convenient overview of city programs and events throughout the entire year. The calendar also contains an advertising insert filled with valuable coupons and other ads purchased by area businesses, which helps to offset printing costs. The calendar’s design, produced entirely in-house by the Community Relations Department, is intended to inspire the City’s 71,000 residents and almost 9,000 businesses. It is also designed to sell Southfield to the rest of the world as one of the premier residential and business communities in Michigan or the Midwest.
