Welcome to the Charter Township of Garfield!

The Garfield Township Planning Commission is working to create a new Master Plan.  A Master Plan is a planning document that establishes growth management goals, policies, and strategies for the Township, and can be used by the Planning Commission when making land use decisions for the Township.  The Planning Commission is asking for your help by taking a short community survey. We greatly appreciate your valuable time in completing this survey. Your opinions are vital to the Master Plan Process.

Garfield Township wants to bring to your attention that there have been reports of telephone scams in the area involving property taxes. The scam involves a caller claiming to work for a company called Diversified Consultants, calling to verify your personal information, including your social security number, and is attempting to collect delinquent property taxes. Please do not give them any personal information and contact police authorities at their non-emergency number (231) 922-4550.

Please note that if you are delinquent on your taxes you would be contacted directly by Garfield Township or Grand Traverse County, not by an outside firm, and we would not ask for personal information— such as your social security number.
