Novi is a city in Oakland County in the U.S. state of Michigan. As of the 2000 census, the population was 47,386. In 2007, the city completed a special census which places the current population at 52,231.[4] The city is located approximately 25 miles (40 km) northwest from the center of Detroit, and 29 miles (47 km) northeast from the center of Ann Arbor. The city is located within the boundaries of the survey township of Novi Township. The remaining unincorporated township is only a tiny fraction surrounded by the city.

Novi was once one of the fastest growing cities in Michigan. The construction of Twelve Oaks Mall in the 1970s made the city a major shopping destination in the Detroit metropolitan area and is often credited with ushering in an era of growth that lasted for 30 years (although, in fact, the community had been growing rapidly since the 1950s). This growth led to substantial increases in the city's population, as well as commercial and industrial developments in the city. In recent years, the decline in Michigan's economy has significantly slowed the growth of the city. The city has experienced very little new residential development. Commercial and industrial development has continued but at a much slower pace than in the past.
