Over the last three years we have opened up 15 new businesses in the city of Inkster. We have brought in an entirely new industry (medical marijuana), which has relieved some of the tax burden from our residents by increasing our business tax base, and is spurring development of new state of the art industrial facilities that our city has never seen before. The partnership between our business owners and the city has set a new standard for private public partnerships. The creation of the public safety foundation, and commitments that our businesses have made to go over and beyond to help the city provide services to its residents and businesses, is unprecedented.
In the summer of 2017 Chase Bank closed its branch in the city of Inkster. In 2019, Chemical/TCF Bank are bringing their lending products and financial education for our residents. Chemical/TCF Bank has committed to placing a mini-branch in the city of Inkster at the Booker Dozier recreation center. They are looking at the feasibility of placing a full service branch in our new downtown development. Bringing a major bank back to the city of Inkster for our residents and businesses is critical to our economic development growth.
