The Center Line Business Association (CLBA) is a group of dedicated local business leaders whose primary purpose is to build a better community through local small business networking. At the heart of this effort is the ideology that by coordinating a group effort in the community, an attraction to commerce is relative to all. After all, smart business owners know that good business requires a healthy economy, and a healthy economy requires a healthy community.
Center Line is fortunate to have many loyal businesses that contribute time and money to make it such a great place to live and work. These individual efforts have gone a long way in a short period of time. The improved look and feel of the city is gaining momentum with a promising future on the rise. The results can be seen in the facades, the K-9 unit patrolling the areas and the increased number in daytime traffic. This is what the CLBA is all about. Our city is a gem in the heart of metropolitan Detroit, and we are surrounded by the most densely populated areas in the state.
Please consider becoming a part of this effort to gain new opportunities and growth for current and future businesses in the city. The CLBA offers local business owners the opportunity to meet once a month to discuss issues pertinent to their businesses and the continued growth of the CLBA.
The CLBA is currently polling businesses in the community about their vision for the future of the city. To participate, visit https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CLBA_Survey.
