Welcome to Michigan’s Great Britton! We are a small farming community with friendly faces. We are always willing to lend a helping hand when needed and meet a new friend. We are proud to say that many of the current residents in our village are direct descendents of its founders.
The Planning Commission has been working on updating the Village's Master Plan. This provides a vision of where the Village is headed. You can see the draft of the plan by clicking on the link below. The draft is available for comments until July 21, 2016. You may come to a Planning Commission meeting, or send comments via the email link on this site. At the end of the comment period, there will be a Public Hearing on July 25, 2016 to hear any final remarks. Remember, this is the draft copy and can still be changed. The final version will be adopted by the Planning Commission at that meeting, and then by the Village Council on Aug, 15, unless there are necessary changes.
Permits are required for vendors or solicitors to go door-to-door within the Village. They can be obtained from the Clerk's Office. If someone comes to your door, ask to see their permit and ID. They should have it with them.
Check the calendar for the dates the DPW Department will be chipping brush. More information is available there.
