Welcome to Kalamazoo Charter Township!

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.

   

Four year old Township resident honored for use of 911 to help save her mom's life.

The Kalamazoo Township Police Department (KTPD) recently nominated 4 year old Township resident Calise Manning for the Michigan Chapter of the National Emergency Number Association (NENA) Young Hero Award. The award is given annually to someone under 12 years of age who uses 911 in an exemplary fashion. Calise received the award in Lansing on May 18, 2015. See MLIVE article.

KTPD dispatcher Debbie Spencer and Dispatcher Annagene Allen of Pride Care were also recognized at the luncheon for the professional manner in which they handled Calise’s call. KTPD Police Chief Timothy Bourgeois stated “We have received many contacts and comments from citizens who now realize the importance of teaching their young children how to appropriately access 911 in an emergency.”

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.
