Melvindale's slogan is "The Little City with a Big Heart." With a population of around 10,000 in just 2.76 square miles, it is indeed a small city. The City of Melvindale is taking an aggessive approach to redevelopment thorugh the Brownfield Redevelopment Program.

Melvindale homes were originally built to house nearby factory workers during the industrial boom of the first half of the 20th century, so many homes in the Melvindale area are smaller and affordable ranch and bungalow styles in established neighborhood subdivisions.

The city hosts the annual Melvindale Days Festival with carnival rides, live entertainment, food venders and fireworks. They also host a "Trunk or Treat" and Harvestfest with hayrides, costumes, candy and family fun. In the winter months, the city holds a Tree Lighting Ceremony.
