"Something is growing in Ann Arbor": But What?

Ok, I have to admit this is driving me crazy.

There are billboards up all around Ann Arbor with the slogan “Something is growing in Ann Arbor.” and a leaf design.

Then when I got the paper yesterday, there it was again as a sticker on the Ann Arbor News.

I’ve tried Googling the phrase, but to no avail.

So what’s the word on the street?



  1. I believe it’s the MidWest Financial (UMHS) Credit Union. They recently sent notices out by mail that they were changing their logo to the leaf you see on the billboards.

  2. Thank you! This has been driving me crazy too…and that sticker yesterday didn’t help.
    I guess their marketing worked though!

  3. Is it a sign of an underground progressive movement emerging in Ann Arbor that will revolutionize the state, the country, and the world?!!!

    Oh, it’s just an advertisement for a financial institution. Well nevermind then.
