Welcome to Peninsula Township
The Old Mission Peninsula is perhaps Michigan's most unique and scenic township. Unlike the typical six-mile by six-mile-square township, the Old Mission Peninsula is finger-like in shape, projecting approximately 16 miles into Grand Traverse Bay. The township varies from one to three miles in width and encompasses approximately 42 miles of Great Lakes shoreline. The 2010 U.S. Census lists a population of 5,433.
Peninsula Township offices will be closing Tuesday, October 22nd and November 19th at 3:00 p.m. for training.

Master Plan Update 2019/Community Survey
As part of its long-term planning, Peninsula Township has commissioned EPIC ▪ MRA, an independent Lansing-based survey research firm, to gather residents’ opinions on a variety of questions, issues, and preferences. Two hundred township residents were selected to participate in a phone survey, and each household will receive a postcard with instructions for participating in the online survey in mid to late October.
The upper right-hand corner of this postcard will contain a unique four-digit sequence number. This number is required to participate in the online survey, which will remain open through November 4, 2019. (Residents who took the phone survey may also take the online survey if they so desire, and each adult resident in the household may use the same four-digit number.)
EPIC ▪ MRA will analyze all the surveys and report the results by grouping responses into categories such as age and gender. No names or email addresses are required to participate, no one who participates can or will be identified, and no responses will be reported in a manner that can be attributed to any individual respondent.
To maintain survey integrity, we respectfully request that only one online survey be completed per adult resident in the household.
If you do not receive a postcard for some reason and would like to participate, or if you would like to arrange for the delivery of a printed copy of the questionnaire, or if you have any other questions, please call EPIC ▪ MRA at 517-886-0860. You may access the survey directly at www.surveymonkey.com/r/PenTwp.
Thank you in advance for answering all survey questions to the best of your ability and for participating in this important project!
