Heat in The Street Fundraising

Embracing the season ...

The Social District in Northville proved very successful in supporting our downtown businesses during the summer and fall months. With COVID not letting up and tighter restrictions returning we are adapting the way we want to keep our downtown a destination for our residents and visitors alike.

Beginning in December we will place heated outdoor dining pods throughout the Social District. These pods can host groups of up to 5 people on either side of the bar-height table. ADA compliant ramps and lower table pull-outs have been incorporated into the design.52934272_1606771716535963_r.jpeg
Restaurants will prepare seasonal food and beverages suited for outdoor consumption. Meals and drinks can either be picked up at participating restaurants or at one of the food stands that will be set up in proximity to the pods. Special, themed events on weekends might be organized; e.g. Friday Chili Night.

Heat in the Street is intended to operate from mid-December through March 2021.


We are planning to set up pods and stands throughout the Social District in the downtown area of Main Street and Center Street. We want to fund this without asking the downtown businesses for help. So far approximately ⅔ of the needed funds have been raised through sponsorships by local businesses in and around Northville, businesses that have been less impacted by COVID than restaurants and the small stores in town.

Business is helping business through sponsorship of our efforts, this campaign is about public contribution in support of our downtown stores and restaurants. We thank you for your consideration and for any amount you can spare to help us with putting “Heat in the Street”.
