Washington Township Historic past… Developing future… A present day community with much to offer. Washington Township lies thirty miles north of Detroit with a history that dates back almost two hundred years. It grew to prosperity as an agricultural community and a number of historic orchards and farms can still be seen throughout the area. The Township is a place where historic architecture mingles with modern lifestyles and fine amenities. It is a place that honors the natural resources with which it was blessed and makes these resources available to its residents of all ages to enjoy year round through an extensive array of facilities and programs. Washington Township is home to several school districts including the highly regarded Romeo School District which offers everything from traditional core subjects to vocational and technical training. Electronics, emergency medical services, culinary arts, computer repair and even video production classes are available. The Township’s high quality district library system augments the educational experience and a Boys and Girls club is available for Township youth to interact with responsible adults after school hours. The Township offers a low tax, high service environment for residents and businesses alike. Streets are patrolled under a contract with the Macomb County Sheriff and highly regarded fire and ambulance services are provided by the township. Washington’s growing village district and other commercial areas provide ample opportunities for entrepreneurs to start a business and flourish with access to markets through the M-53 Expressway. Most importantly, because Washington is a growing community it offers an environment where your business can grow along with the Township. If you are looking for a relaxed, small town community dotted with lakes and streams, state-of-the-art facilities with programs to match, quality educational opportunities, and diversified lifestyle choices, then come to Washington Township.
