Welcome to
Torch Lake Township


Nestled between Lake Michigan's Grand Traverse Bay and Torch Lake, Torch Lake Township is a community of about 1,200 full time locals - coupled with additional summer residents and vacationers.

Supervisors corner

Fall is clearly in the air and there are a lot of activities underway at the Township.

SEPTEMBER ACTIVITY

The Township received a petition seeking a ballot referendum to rescind the action of the Township Board which approved the action of the Planning Commission regarding a rezoning request on M88 for a lot moving from Village Residential  to Village Business. This referendum relates only to the M88 property and not to any other property currently being evaluated for a zoning change. Please contact the Clerk’s Office or Supervisor for any questions related to this petition.
