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.

Upcoming Special Informational Meeting
On October 6, 2021, at 7:00 p.m., the Peninsula Township Board will hold a special meeting to: 1) allow citizens’ comments on the Amended Complaint filed by WOMP; and 2) allow the board to go into closed session to discuss the proposed settlement agreement that was created as a result of numerous meetings between representatives from WOMP and Peninsula Township. The meeting will take place at St. Joseph Church located at 12675 Center Road. Your attendance and comments are welcome and encouraged. To view the amended complaint see the township board packet (website opens in a new tab) for this meeting.
