It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the City of Utica. Utica is an example of small town life with all the amenities of the larger communities in the Detroit metro area. Our schools, both parochial and public, are some of the best in the State. Churches abound, as do pleasant walking paths, parks, unique historic homes and specialty shops. Whether it is regional shopping venues or friendly "Mom and Pop" enterprises, Utica has something for everyone.


Gus Calandrino, Mayor of Utica
