Bloomfield Hills is a community of residents that value strongly the traditions of quiet, rural residential properties. The community is the home to the internationally renowned Cranbrook Institute of Science and Art, the exclusive Bloomfield Hills Country Club and the Bloomfield Open Hunt Club. This is a community that wishes little change other than continually reliable and improving public services. Change occurs only with deliberate, active participation by residents.
