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.

Draft Master Plan Update
Work to update the Peninsula Township Master Plan has been underway for some time, and a draft document (dated 9/27/2021) is now available for review on the planning page (website opens in a new tab). This document was developed by the Peninsula Township Master Plan Steering Committee composed of residents, members of the planning commission, and township board members. The draft master plan was formally introduced to the planning commission at its recent meeting on September 20. Next steps will include a formal public hearing along with additional opportunities for public review and comment. You are also invited to offer comments on the current draft that is before the planning commission now. Comments in writing (email or letter) are most appreciated and can be sent to Becky Chown, Peninsula Township clerk, at email@example.com. The next scheduled meeting of the planning commission is October 18, 2021.
