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.

Please Keep Sidewalks Clear

For many children and adults having a clear sidewalk to get to bus stops or the grocery store is critical. It can be tough with the snowplow shoving snow up from the street but we're hoping people can work together to keep it done. If you have a snow blower or can handle the workout, help a neighbor, if you hire a plow service to clear your driveway try to find one that will also do your sidewalk. If you can't shovel see if you can pay someone in the neighborhood or offer to bake them cookies or trade for some time dog sitting or other service. If you belong to a church or other organization you can identify those who need help and create a snow angel group to go out together to clear their sidewalks.

If you have good ideas or examples form other communities on how the township can keep sidewalks clear, contact a Township board member to let them know.
