A vibrant, picturesque community of 15,000 people, Sault Ste. Marie is situated on the southern shore of the historic St. Mary's River at the eastern end of Michiganís spectacular Upper Peninsula.
Known as the Northern Gateway to Canada the Sault is home to the world famous Soo Locks, connecting Lake Superior with Lake Huron.
Against this historical backdrop, Sault Ste. Marie is a modern community, home to the highly respected Lake Superior State University on a lovely historic campus, a dynamic and fast- growing regional medical center in the heart of the city s attractive downtown, and modern and growing shopping facilities.
Located on the northern end of Interstate I-75, Sault Ste. Marie is strategically located at the nexus of rail, highway, air and water transportation systems.
As a long-time tourist mecca, the community is full of generous people who are very welcoming of newcomers. This extends to the growing economic base of the city and county, where several modern industrial parks, three airports, low energy costs driven by hydroelectric power complement the friendly business environment, industrious work ethic of our people and a minimal bureaucracy with strong community collaboration to help to make Sault Ste. Marie the place to grow.
With the region's abundant natural beauty, nearby Great Lakes, extensive National and State forests, limitless fishing opportunities, Sault Ste. Marie is indeed a great place to live. And with our safe neighborhoods, lack of traffic congestion, affordable housing, extensive cultural activities, low cost of living, and modern and outstanding public and private educational facilities, this is a great place to raise a family.
Welcome to the City of Sault Ste. Marie's Website. This site is intended to give you up-to-date information on the City Government, from myself and the Commission to City Administration, to citizen boards and commissions. You'll find minutes and agendas from the City Commission, as well as economic development information if you're looking to relocate a business to the Sault.
The City of Sault Ste. Marie is a beautiful city with a great and storied history. We are Michiganís oldest European settlement, founded in 1668. We are located on the St. Mary's River which is home to the Soo Locks, the busiest in the world. The city is proud of her historic treasures, such as the Museum Ship Valley Camp, Fort Brady, and several historic churches.
In recent years have seen a real growth in our community with: the initiation of our Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) and street re-building program with overall cost $35 million, the U.S. Coast Guard residential subdivision, the completion of the Downtown Streetscape Project, the construction of Avery Square (a retail office and senior housing complex), the Sault Tribe Kewadin Casino and Health Facilities, the construction of our Air Industrial Park and a new passenger terminal, and the emergence of several successful industrial manufacturers. Our quality of life is strengthened by such activities, places, and projects as: the Soo Locks Festival, Professional In-Fisherman Walleye Tournament, I-500 Snowmobile Race, and the City's Public Golf Course and Sherman Park on the St. Mary's River, several ice arenas, Project Pride -- Van Citter's Field, Project Playground and Project Park - Sault Seal Recreation Area snow tubing and skiing.
All these examples showcase the city's pride as a great place to live, work, and play. In addition, the Soo is home to Lake Superior State University's Division I Ice Hockey Program and the Soo Eagles Jr. A hockey team. On behalf of the citizens of Sault Ste. Marie, I hope you find our website to be useful and informative. I also invite you to visit and see for yourself why our city is such a great place. Please don't hesitate to contact me at City Hall.
