A Message from Mayor Tim Bala

I would like to welcome you to our website for the City of Wayland.  Whether you are a resident looking for information, are considering a move to the City of Wayland, thinking about a visit or are just interested in learning more about a great Michigan community, I welcome you.

Wayland has the unique advantage of being located between two major metropolitan areas, Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo, while retaining the country charm of a rural community.  We are a city of about 4,100 residents and growing.  The excellent quality of life in Wayland is exemplified by our award-winning school system, wonderful neighborhoods, and many recreational opportunities.

From our founding in the early 1800's to today, our residents have worked to build a community that welcomes everyone.  There are many housing options in Wayland that include single and multi-family homes, apartment complexes, senior housing and a modular home community.  Whatever your housing need, we can fill it in Wayland.

Firms looking to expand will find that Wayland's skilled labor force, ready access to major transportation routes, a proactive approach to economic development gives Wayland a competitive advantage over other communities in the region.

Mayor Tim Bala
