Saline is just a short drive from the world-class academic, cultural, and sports attractions of Ann Arbor and the University of Michigan. Downtown Detroit is only an hour away.
Roughly 250,000 working-age people live within a 20-minute commute to the City, and more than 1.5 million live within a 45-minute commute. This includes excellent concentrations of both skilled and unskilled workers; and an unparalleled selection of experienced managers, as well as management trainees from several area universities, colleges, and vocational training schools.
More than anything else, the character of Saline-area workers is an extension of the community's agricultural roots, whose heritage puts a premium on traditional values, hard work, self-reliance, independence, and an enduring pride in one's community, family and job.
Saline offers the highest quality in community amenities including top-notch hospitals, schools, and recreation facilities. It is part of the Ann Arbor metropolitan area which is consistently rated as one of the top ten areas for quality of life each year.
||OS, office service district. The intent of the office service district is to provide locations for uses which primarily include office and technical uses, and business and personal services uses which are dependent on and supportive of an office environment. The office service district is intended to provide for a compatible transitional use between commercial and residential areas and/or between thoroughfares and residential areas.
The district shall be characterized by uses which: generally operate during normal business hours; produce a low volume of traffic; may require some service areas along with storage facilities; and, are located in buildings which are architecturally compatible with the surrounding area.
The office service district is not intended to permit commercial retail uses that generate a large traffic volume. A limited range of business and service uses are permitted for the benefit of office personnel, tenants and visitors, provided that offices and technical uses remain the predominant use within the district. In OS districts, all architectural plans for buildings shall be presented to the planning commission and receive their approval prior to submitting plans to the building department for approval and issuance of a building permit. It is intended that such office service buildings, when located adjacent to a residential area, shall take on appearance of residential buildings in order to preserve the general character of the residential neighborhood.
