Located just a short distance West of Flint and only moments from the 1-75/23 corridor allows the people of Flushing to enjoy the advantages of a metropolitan area, while residing in a small town atmosphere.


The City of Flushing is a stable community with quality residential neighborhoods, good schools, beautiful views of the Flint River, a historic and vibrant downtown, parks, and convenient freeway access. Annual events and festivals, such as the Summerfest and Christmas Candlewalk contribute to Flushing's "small town" sense of community.


The Flint River and related topography are the most important visual assets to the community. Spectacular views of the river valley and tranquility of the water create an identity unique to the region. The City has taken full advantage of this resource, especially in the downtown. The river's aesthetic opportunities include physical links to the river in the downtown area, along Main Street east of the Central Business District, and in Riverview Park along the Riverview Trail.

The Michigan Paycheck Protection Program (MiPPP) provides small businesses in Michigan COVID-19 relief, giving funds to pay up to 8 weeks of payroll costs including benefits. Funds can also be used to pay interest on mortgages, rent, and utilities. Funds are provided in the form of loans that will be fully forgiven when used for payroll costs, interest on mortgages, rent, and utilities (due to likely high subscription, at least 75% of the forgiven amount must have been used for payroll).

Governor Whitmer has issued Executive Order 2020-28 (COVID-19), Restoring Water Service to Occupied Residences during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Water service must be restored to any occupied residence where water has been shut off due to nonpayment, so long as the public water supply does not have reason to believe that reconnection would create a risk to public health. As a precautionary measure, Department of Public Works staff will be posting a notice today at properties in the city with no water supply to confirm occupancy status. Please contact Flushing City Hall by email at administration@flushingcity.com or by phone at 810-762-5710, if you are occupying a residence with no water supply due to non payment.

In order to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, playground equipment will be closed. Continue to use the TRAILS and OPEN SPACES in the PARKS while engaged in social distancing. This action is not taken lightly, however falls in line with similar actions taken by our county partners and recommendations received from the state and federal government in flattening the curve associated with COVID-19.
