Eagle Scout Project - Bettering our Parks!

In April 2017, Eagle Scout candidate Joseph Berkheiser along with Troop 308 in Commerce Township built and installed 18 pet waste stations in six of Commerce's Parks (Dodge, Richardson, Bicentennial, Hickory Glenn, Maple Glenn, and Long Park). The purpose of the project was to recycle plastic grocery bags and to help keep our community parks clean from pet waste. Troop 308 contributed over 120 man hours to Commerce Township designing, planning, fund raising, building and installing these waste stations.

The community can help by restocking the waste stations while walking through the parks or dropping off the bags at the Richardson Center.

Commerce Township’s Position Regarding Changes in the Medical Marihuana Laws

Commerce Township is aware of the three Public Acts signed into law in September 2016 which address medical marihuana, particularly the Medical Marihuana Facilities Licensing Act. The Licensing Act permits the State to issue licenses for businesses associated with medical marihuana, but such licenses cannot be issued until December 2017 and only if the Township specifically passes an ordinance permitting such licenses. The Township currently does not have such an ordinance. 

The Commerce Township Board of Trustees, in consultation with the Township attorneys, will be deciding what, if any, actions it will take in response to the new laws. In the meantime, the Township will continue to follow federal, state and local laws pertaining to marihuana.
