Community Center

In April 2017, the Waterford Township Board of Trustees held a Town Hall forum to share information and receive input from the community regarding the possibility of building a community center.  The video for this meeting can be viewed on-demand at the Township's PEG channel website.


The following message will accompany a survey the Township is conducting regarding this proposed project:

Dear Resident,

Waterford Township will be paying off a Building Bond in 2017 that funded the construction of the Police and Fire Department Buildings. In 2018, Waterford residents will be given an opportunity to approve the issuance of a bond to construct a new Community Center which would not increase property taxes. Residents would continue paying the same amount, or less, on their tax bill if the new bond is approved as they have been paying on their past tax bills for the existing bond.

This survey will provide information on how our residents use the existing Waterford Recreation Center and how we can improve the facilities to satisfy our residents’ needs if we build a new Community Center.
