Message from Mayor Michael Armitage

On behalf of the Charlotte City Council and staff, I would like to welcome you to the City of Charlotte’s official website.  If, during your search, you don’t find what you are looking for, don’t hesitate to contact our webmaster, or call the City offices at 517-543-2750 or 517-543-8850.

I chose to call Charlotte home as it is a community with “small-town charm” coupled with amenities of a larger city.   This marriage of features is evident by the mix of historic buildings and modern facilities such as the Charlotte Performing Arts Center, AL!VE, and Sparrow Eaton Hospital. Charlotte is also located along I-69, which provides quick access to cities such as Lansing. As the proud seat of Eaton County, Charlotte is also home to the Eaton County governmental complex.

Charlotte is a proud Michigan Main Street Community, enjoying a historic downtown with a high occupancy rate.  In addition to the new Timepiece pocket park downtown, Beach Market is also undergoing a renovation and will be another place the community will gather with pride, once we arrive at an end of this pandemic.  These projects were made possible by the generous support of our community, and collaborations between the city, non-profits, and other organizations.

Charlotte is a community where black and orange “Oriole Pride” runs deep and where one of our best qualities is the collaboration and support between the community and the school district. Charlotte is also home to St. Mary’s School.

Please take a moment to follow the city on social media @CityCharlotteMI. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, suggestions, or other comments at or call/text 734-474-1574.

Go Orioles!

Mayor Michael Armitage, MPA
