Leaf and brush pick-up that was to have taken place this week will be delayed except for Monday's pick-up which was completed before the snow got too heavy. Pick-up will begin again on Monday November 24 with area 2, the section that is normally picked up on Tuesday. Area 3 will be picked up on Tuesday, Area 4 on Wednesday, Thursday there will be no pick-up and area 5 will be picked up on Friday November 28. 
Click here for map of areas and please go by the days noted above, not those on the map.

 We realize that some of you already have your leaves out and they're covered with snow but there are others that don't have them out yet and have no place to set them out. In addition, we want to avoid the risk associated with having trucks stopping on the roads while the snow plows are trying to clear them or having trucks slide off the roads. They will do their best to pick up what is on the curb next week. Thank you for helping us work through these unusual circumstances.

Please pass this information on to your neighbors who may not have internet service.

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.

Non-Motorized Transportation Planning

Walk to the bus stop or store, bike to work, take the baby out in the stroller, bike ride with your kids, jog or take the dog for a walk. How do you, or how would you like to be able to, use non-motorized transportation in Kalamazoo Township? Two public input meetings have been held on a master plan for non-motorized transportation in Kalamazoo Township.
A copy of the draft master plan will be available on this web site early next week for additional public input.


Township Board Considering Roadway Improvement Options
The Board of Trustees is continuing a deliberate and thoughtful process to develop options for funding local roadway improvements. The board is concerned that if the road issue is not dealt with soon the cost will continue to increase dramatically, as a very poor road cost much more to bring up to the level of good than a fair road. The board will be making a decision on this issue by their first meeting in December. For detailed information on what the board  considered please Click Here

The Board has authorized the further study of using Voter-Approved Bonds to fund roadway improvements. Click Here for details. There is additional information on the Transportation and Roads page on our web site. Any additional information will be posted on these pages as it becomes available.

The following links will take you to the charts that were shown on the PMN Roundtable Program (see link in News and Alerts).

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.
