The Birmingham Township Comprehensive Plan (the Plan) is ten years old and in need of review. The Plan serves to guide township authorities and volunteers as they set priorities for Birmingham. It also gives residents a sense of the goals the township will set in preparing for the future. To accomplish that review and update we are collecting the opinions of large sample of adult residents in the township.

We want to know what you want. You can impact your township’s future directly by answering the questions below.

What do you like about Birmingham Township and want us not to lose?     
What would you like to see improved or added to Birmingham in the next five years (if anything)?  
Is something in your answer above important enough to you that you would accept an increase in Birmingham Township taxes by 25% (say about $100. per year)?  
What is your age bracket? (required)  
Do you have children of school age (K through senior high school)? (required)  
Please tell us your name so that we don’t ask you these same questions again. (required)    
Your Email Address (required)    

Please Note: As of 2013 the Board of Supervisors has changed its meeting dates to only meet once a month instead of twice as was done in the past. The BOS will be meeting the first Monday of each month at 7:30 PM
