When Livonia was incorporated in 1950, no one could have seen what it would look like in 190. No one could have seen that what was then a farming community on the east would become the protypical city of the next century. In Livonia: A Rich Past, A Golden Future, the author shows why Livonia has become what many feel to be the "best-run city in America." After a brief "history lesson", which traces Livonia's development from the time of its settlement in 1818, Henderson shows how Livonia offers a lesson in planning to other mid-sized communities struggling with the issue of growth. Much of Livonia's growth is occurring in the northwest corner, where hundreds of acres in the Golden Corridor are being converted to high-tech commercial development. But this is more than the story of development. Henderson also focuses on Livonia's special people, and the places, events, and culture that make the city an exemplary place to live. Complementing the text are more than 100 color photographs, and Part Two. "Livonia's Enterprises." profiles the businesses and organizations that have supported this publication and the city at large.
