Welcome to the City of East Jordan

Where river, lake and friendly people meet

On behalf of the Mayor, City Commission and staff of the City of East Jordan, I welcome you to our website. Located at the mouth of the Jordan River where it flows into the South Arm of Lake Charlevoix, East Jordan is ideally suited for a long stay or just a weekend getaway.

This website is designed to help you keep informed about our community. Keeping you up-to-date with current events and governmental developments is our commitment to you.

Tom Cannon, City Administrator


The City of East Jordan will be hosting a public charrette to discuss redevelopment and trail opportunities November 2nd, 6:00 pm at the Civic Center front room.  

We’ll be requesting input towards a bridge and (safe) walkway across the Jordan River as an improved access from the current boat launch or sportsman’s park to downtown.    Another focus on the session will be future development suggestions for the current boat launch property as construction of a new launch site near the Tourist Park could begin in the next 1-2 years. 

Please join the City to help plan another piece of our community’s sustainable future!
