2019 METRO DETROIT ASOURCE

Commerce Township was a summer playground for Detroit residents who built summer cottages here. These cottages were turned into year-round homes, which gave way to spectacular new homes in this watershed wonderland. The extension of M-5 provides residents with access to the rest of the Metro area freeway system and has brought a lot of new development with it. The Township’s civic campus includes 120 acres of park-like open space with tons of new homes. Proud Lake State Recreation Area occupies a big parcel of the Township and nine industrial parks help support its tax base.
