Brian Smith

For City Council

When it was time to put down roots for his family, Brian chose a place he could see spending a lifetime in: Novi. As an engineer, a parent, and an avid bicyclist, Novi’s strong schools, green spaces, and access to work and recreation drew him in and spurred his desire to serve on the Parks and Recreation Commission.

Now, he’s running for city council to help his neighbors and fellow residents find creative solutions to Novi’s challenges, and to keep our city green, family-friendly, and resident-focused for generations to come. Some of Brian’s favorite Novi activities include mountain biking on the trails in Lakeshore Park, taking advantage of the walkable/bikeable neighborhoods, and visiting the Novi Public Library.

Brian’s priorities include pursuing smart development and redevelopment to maximize the use of existing retail space, preserving and expanding Novi’s parks, sidewalks, and recreation areas, promoting energy conservation and sustainability, and pursuing municipal broadband.

My Priorities

For too long, Novi leaders have let developers decide what’s best for our city, leaving us with both overdevelopment and abandoned storefronts. We are advocating for a Master Plan that puts citizens’ needs at the forefront, where development is used strategically to enhance our amenities while preserving Novi’s character and small-town feel. We will also repurpose vacant spaces wherever possible to increase curb appeal while bringing valued services and jobs to our community.

With more of our residents working and schooling from home these days, the internet is no longer a luxury—it’s a necessity in our ever-connected society. We believe that distributing fast, high-quality internet as a municipal provider promotes both equitable access and cost savings for our community. It’s an investment that helps our students learn, our citizens apply for jobs or see a doctor, and our small businesses establish themselves, and it will have tangible benefits across Novi. 

Parks, walking paths, and green spaces enhance the quality of life for residents of all ages. Our plan for Novi includes maintaining and expanding the outdoor amenities that make our neighborhoods enjoyable and improve our collective well-being.
