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

AUGUST IS HERE . . .

The election results are in and I want to thank the citizens of Torch Lake Township for approving the increase for the road millage with 71% of the vote. This sets up the Township to pursue the 10-year road plan whose goal is to finish all the Township’s roads. Beginning in 2032, the oldest road surface will be 10 years old with an additional 15-to-20-year life expectancy. The road millage can then be used to build up reserves for the future rework as well as providing funds for as needed annual maintenance of the roads. The referendum on Ordinance 2021-08 also passed.

July was a relatively quiet month. Activity has picked up in the Zoning office with the summer months and Sara and Jackie are keeping up with the workflow. We hired a new paramedic and more people have come forward to work as Day Park Attendants. More help is needed, so if you’re interested in serving the community down at the Day Park, contact virginia@torchlaketownship.org.

We have a meeting of the Zoning Board of Appeals this month. Check the Website for the date, time and agenda items.

As a reminder, the August Board meeting is Tuesday, August 16, 2022. The draft Agenda will be ready by 2 PM on August 11. The Board package and final Agenda will be available after 2 PM on Saturday, August 13.

We still have an opportunity for those who wish to become more active in the governing of our Township.

There is an opening on the Planning Commission. Bob Hawkins has resigned after serving for several years and I want to thank him for his service. Bob continues serving the Township as a member of the fire team, our Ordinance Enforcement Officer and working at the Day Park.

In addition, I am looking for two people for the Zoning Board of Appeals. Anyone interested in either of these positions should contact me supervisorcook@torchlaketownship.org.
