“Little City with a Big Heart” isn’t just a saying in Clawson, it’s a way of life.
A community of only 2.2 square miles, Clawson is one of the smallest communities in Oakland County and is ideally situated between I-75 and Woodward Avenue. A predominately residential community, the small-town atmosphere of Clawson is enhanced by a vibrant downtown, bustling commercial districts and a commitment to providing a high quality of life for all.
Streamlining and efficiency is key goal for the city and to help achieve this goal we’ve put together a variety of resoruces for individuals and businesses who are interested in our special community.
