What Bert Has To Say About Saginaw Metro Area

Saginaw is a middle-of-the-road industrial city and gateway to recreational areas in northern Michigan. Once an important forest products processor, that industry has declined somewhat and the area now has more general industry and agricultural processing. Downtown has been in decline for years, although there is a small “Old Town” entertainment district across the Saginaw River. Today, unemployment is a problem in the area, crime rates are high and the weak economy has driven housing prices down to the point where they make national news for how low they are. As a gateway to the region, Saginaw does have a good balance of services and facilities for a city of its size and profile, including higher education, healthcare, air service, and some cultural amenities.
