Welcome to the City of Hart

Nestled in the northwestern quarter of Oceana County near US-31, the City of Hart is a quaint, quiet community, a perfect place to raise a family and enjoy a good life.

MAY 02, 2018

On June 27, 2017, the City awarded a $674,000 construction contract to McCormick Sand to replace sewer, water, street and sidewalk facilities on Courtland between Jefferson and Wood; Jefferson between State and Water; and Jefferson between Hart and Union.

All undergrounding services have been completed. Water and sanitary sewer mains are in place as well as the storm drains. Electrical runs and new services have also been completed!

Streets are being compacted and being made ready for paving. Several problem sidewalks in the area have been identified and are being removed and replaced. Curbs and driveway aprons will also be poured.

The City will be hosting a “City Wide Clean-Up Day” starting on May 5 to the actual pickup date of May 8th. Please place your items on the nearest curb that is easily accessible for the garbage trucks. If anyone has any questions in regards to this, please ask them to contact City Hall at the below-listed number. We want to be fair and have all residents be able to participate in this clean-up service.

You will still continue to experience inconveniences during this project. You may contact the City at 231-873-2488 for additional information about construction-related issues.

The City has retained Prein & Newhof Engineering to monitor construction progress. If you need to speak to one of their representatives, the City will provide you with their number.

Thank you for your patience during the construction process!

CharetteAnnouncing: Charrette Planning Session
In 2016 the City of Hart purchased the property at 33 South State Street, an empty lot between Dale & Gail’s Music and Art Gallery and Lakeside Rehab and Family Fitness. Downtowns refer to these properties as “Pocket Parks,” and in downtown Hart, this space has been used as a pass-through from parking to the access to the State Street storefronts. To make better use of the space, Hart Main Street is holding a design Charrette, a planning session to gather the ideas of the community for the design of the Pocket Park.

On June 14 from 5 – 7 PM, volunteers will be in place showing ways the space could be used, and inviting the community to share what they would like to see and do in the park.

There will be examples of fitness, entertainment, picnicking with free hotdogs and bottled water, some playground equipment, a free little library space, a sensory garden to explore, and a water feature. The idea of enhancing this space is to give the community a reason to come downtown and spend time, or linger.
