NARRATIVE PROFILE

History

Berrien Springs was originally named “Berrien” after the honorable Attorney General John MacPherson
Berrien, once a member of President Andrew Jackson’s cabinet. “Springs” was added to the name in
1835 at the request of merchant Robert E. Ward, after mineral springs were discovered near the town.
Serving as the county seat of government from 1837 to 1894, the village continued to grow. The Village
of Berrien Springs was plotted in 1831, but was not officially incorporated until 1867.

From its beginning, Berrien Springs has been essentially a rural farming community, with only a few light
industrial entrepreneurs. The Village enjoyed a mild success as a tourist resort in the late 19th and early
20th centuries. In 1901 Berrien Springs became the home of Emmanuel Missionary College, a Seventh-
day Adventist institution. This institution, renamed Andrews University, is now an important part of the
community. Currently, the villagers are working hard revitalizing the Village through a combination of
historic preservation and aesthetic improvements. Through the teamwork of the villagers, its businesses,
and Andrews University, revitalization is well on its way to success.

Observations

Berrien Springs Village covers approximately 0.9 square miles, straddles two townships, and is located
within the central region of Berrien County. The St. Joseph River, which gently flows along the eastern
and southern boundaries of the village, has put its mark on the friendly landscape and has proved to be a
year-round haven to many amateur fishermen. The Village proudly reflects a very American, hometown
atmosphere and enjoys a fairly low crime rate. Berrien Springs has its own school system, in addition to
the many parochial schools within the Village. The Village also enjoys an 8.85 acre park, called the Grove,
which Overlooks Lake Chapin, in the St. Joseph River. The combination of these assets makes it a good
place for families to raise their children.

Due to its lengthy history as a village, Berrien Springs today stands as a built-out community with little
land available for new development. Much has been taken up by urban housing, in addition to some
commercial and light-industrial development. The opening of the new U.S. 31 by-pass has taken much of
the commercial traffic out of the downtown area. In addition, the by-pass will eventually connect with
Interstate 196, which will constitute a major improvement in the area’s infrastructure.

Recently, the Village Board appointed a special commission to plan and supervise the revitalization of Berrien
Springs Village, with the intention to make the Village more than just a “drive-thru” community. Thus far, plans
have been made for riverfront development as well as a revitalization of the downtown area.

Community Vision

A.   Implement the revitalization plans for the downtown area.
B.   Continue riverfront development for recreational purposes.
C.   Make Berrien Springs more than a ‘drive-thru’ community.
D.   Attract more tourism to the area.

Agenda of the Community Strategic Plan

The Village does not have a formal strategic plan. The Southwestern Michigan Commission recently
completed a Recreation Plan for the Village that outlines some of the revitalization plans for the
community. Andrews University has also been working with the Village on revitalization plans.

TAXES2

In March 1998, Michigan voters approved a new tax structure (Proposal A). The following table provides
a simplistic look at the taxes currently levied within this community. There will be several years of
adjustment that will result in changes to the levied taxes. Property tax is based now upon taxable value,
not state equalized value.
