What's going on with the RTA? Five tough questions with CEO Michael Ford

Of the top 25 metro regions, metro Detroit is the only one that doesn't have a functional regional mass transit system. The recently established RTA was meant to remedy that. But progress has been slow... and quiet. Metromode's Natalie Burg asks the organization's new CEO what's going on.

Sterling Heights

Sterling Heights

It may not have been around as long as some Metro Detroit cities, but in roughly 40 years Sterling Heights (incorporated in 1968) has really come into its own. Not only is it Michigan's fourth largest city, it's been ranked in the top 20 in Money Magazine's list of "Best Small Cities."

Nestled East of Troy and north of Warren and approximately 23 miles from Detroit, the city is known for its safe neighborhoods, diverse business landscape, growing Chaldean and Asian communities, and signature outdoor attractions. First and foremost of those is the Clinton River, which provides endless opportunities to boat, kayak and fish. Freedom Trail also runs through Sterling Heights with a hike, bike, and rollerblade path that connects over 20 miles of Macomb County Metro Parks.

If you've got a hankering for festivals, the city's Dodge Park and Freedom Hill Amphitheater boast must-attended family-friendly events. From a spectacular 4th Of July fireworks show to an eclectic summer outdoor concert series, the amphitheater is ground zero for local entertainment. Similarly, Dodge Park is home to the city's annual and ever-popular Sterling Fest. If you're looking for something a little more Old World, check out the American-Polish Festival, which straddles Dequindre Rd. and neighboring Troy, as it celebrates the region's Polish heritage.

Foodies take comfort, SH has got you covered. Looking for the ingredients to your next authentic Italian meal? Ventimiglia Italian Foods carries products from 'The Boot' while offering up mouth-watering subs. Antonio's Italian Cuisine gets high marks from local reviewers and Sterling's Bistro has been described as "a gem hidden in plain sight" by the Metro Times.
