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.

Zoning Ordinance Update

-A public hearing for the zoning ordinance update will take place on June 8, 2016. See special meeting notice above.  For the past year your planning commission has been actively involved with a project to update the Township’s Zoning Ordinance, zoning map and design guidelines. The current Zoning Ordinance was adopted in 1947 and has been amended on a regular basis during the past 65+ years without a comprehensive revision. In its current form, the Ordinance fails to meet the Township’s needs in several areas and in some, contradicts Michigan Law.
