City of Wayland

Important Alert


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 1800s 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, and a proactive approach to economic development give Wayland a competitive advantage over other communities in the region.
