LYON TOWNSHIP / SOUTH LYON

The township’s distinction as the fastest-growing community in Oakland County is clear evidence of the community’s broad appeal, which includes its proximity to many of the region’s top assets: top health care providers, major universities, and convenient freeway access. South Lyon is a newer participant in the Main Street Oakland County program. Excellent schools and abundant recreation resources make these communities a premier locations in which to live, work and play.
