Mesothelioma Doctors, Lawyers and Asbestos Exposure in Pontiac, Michigan

The city of Pontiac, Michigan occupies 20.2 square miles within the Detroit metropolitan area. The city is bounded by Auburn Hills to the east and north, Lake Angelus to the north, Waterford Township to the west, and Bloomfield Township to the south. Home to nearly 59,515 citizens, Pontiac is the county seat of Oakland County. The city is best known for its General Motors manufacturing plants (GM's primary truck plant was formerly in Pontiac) and the former GM automobile brand Pontiac, which was first produced in and named after the city.

First settled in 1818, and later incorporated as a city in 1861, Pontiac's central location served it well and quickly became a center of industry. The city became the location of choice for woolen and grist mills which made use of the Clinton River as a power source. With the establishment of several carriage manufacturing companies, all of which were thriving at the turn of the 20th century when the first self-propelled vehicles were introduced, Pontiac quickly became a capital of the new automotive industry. As the small "horseless carriage" manufacturers became consolidated under the mantle of the General Motors Corporation, Pontiac grew as the industry grew, suffering the same setback as other cities during the depression years. In the boom years following World War II, Pontiac was at the forefront of growth in affluent Oakland County. In the 1960s and 1970s came urban renewal and the “Pontiac Plan” in an attempt to revitalize the downtown area. In 2010, city leaders and business owners launched "The Rise of The Phoenix" initiative. This plan was aimed at businesses interested in downtown retail space. More than 50 businesses have opened as a result.
