General Information Formed in 1832, Marshall Township is a general law township located at the crossroads of Interstates I-94 and I-69 in Calhoun County, Michigan. The combination of low property taxes, several attractive residential developments and being within favorable commuting distance of Battle Creek, Kalamazoo, Lansing and Ann Arbor has made the Township a very desirable place to live.
The Township also has some of the best farmland in Calhoun County. In addition, Marshall Township has one of the largest pieces of vacant land zoned light industrial with railroad between Detroit and Chicago. The land totals approximately 774 acres in all. Overall, the Township is a thirty-six square mile area surrounding the city of Marshall on the north, west and south.
The 2012 Census has placed the Township's population 3,113 people. State Equalized Value of the township for 2013 is $122,146,315 with a Township millage rate of 0.8061 mills. The Township only has one mile of unpaved road.
Marshall Township is a zoned community, with the first zoning ordinance enacted in 1955. The Township is governed by a five member board elected every four years in the general election. The make up of the Board is one Supervisor, Treasurer, Clerk and two Trustees. The duties of each appear in State Statute; all meetings of the Township Board, or any other Board or Commission appointed by the Board are open to the public in compliance with the Open Meetings Act. The Township is a member of Michigan Township Association.
Today, Marshall Township stands at not only literally the crossroads of two major interstates which are a part of the NAFTA trade route, but at the crossroads of planning for its future development as an entity unto itself with great quality of life for its residents while maintaining the lowest possible tax structure.
