Welcome to Kalamazoo Charter Township!

The mission of Kalamazoo Township is to provide government services that promote a safe, healthy, accessible, and economically viable community to live, work, learn, and play.

Kalamazoo Township wraps around three sides of the City of Kalamazoo, offering equally easy access to all the urban amenities and more rural activities. The Township is made up of four neighborhoods, each with a strong sense of community and history. They contain a broad range of housing stock, thriving locally owned businesses, and commercial and industrial areas available for development. All parts of the Township have access to broadband internet, curbside recycling, and municipal sewer and water. Families in the township have access to several quality school choices, including Kalamazoo Public Schools and the nationally known Kalamazoo Promise Scholarship. Anywhere in the Township residents are short minutes away from highly rated medical facilities and universities as well as parks, golf courses, tennis courts and bike trails. If you’re looking for a place to raise a family, live close to work and play or start a business, please join us in Kalamazoo Township.

Red Med Box

Have you ever wondered what to do with unused or expired medication? Whatever you do, don't flush them down the toilet. Instead, dispose of those items at a Red Med Box.

Red Med Boxes are located at certain area law enforcement buildings, including at the Kalamazoo Township Police Department. Red Med Box is an easy and secure way to dispose of your unused or expired medication. 

News & Events
Road work in front of Kalamazoo Township Hall on Riverview and Mt. Olivet is completed!

Road Work in the Township is wrapping up for the season.

We will continue to post weekly updates in our news and alerts links.

Dog owners, please remember to keep your dogs off the chip sealed roads for a few days after they have been done, especially if it's a hot day.  If your dog does get tar on it's feet you can try cleaning it off with the type of decreasing cleaner that mechanics use for their hands then wash the residue from that off with your regular dog safe shampoo.

Milling work began south of East Main on June 16.  It is important that cars are not parked on the road when the work is being done.  Your cooperation is appreciated.

The Township Board has appointed Trustee Donald Martin as Highway Commissioner for Kalamazoo Township. Trustee Martin will be in frequent communication with the Road Commission regarding work being done. If you have questions about road work in your area you can call Trustee Martin at (269) 251-7377 or email

Road Work Includes Drains

Some of you may have noticed some activity that was not on our roads list. It involves the drains along the roads. In order to do a proper job of repairing the roads it is necessary to have proper drainage. As the Road Commission has been preparing to do the work on the Township road improvements they have been assessing the drains. In some cases they are just clearing them in other cases they may be rebuilding or adding drains. If you have questions regarding drain work in your neighborhood you my contact the Township's Highway Commissioner, Don Martin at or (269) 251-7377.
