Township Advisory Board

We have made it through the summer and fall is upon us. As we move into a new season, we should strive to take a hard look at ways to make life better and move forward. In today’s hectic world, it is easy to forget that taking time to enjoy each day is so important to our health and well-being. Westfield Washington Township is committed to creating, establishing, and maintaining a strong sense of community for all ages and fostering an atmosphere that enriches the quality of life for our community. That is why we are ecstatic for the future of Westfield Washington Township and our new building breaking ground this fall. The new building, in collaboration with Westfield Washington Public Library, will showcase a community space that will allow our community to gather, play and learn. This partnership will also provide the opportunity for both entities to expand programming, share space, equipment, staff and ultimately provide a more efficient space for the community to enjoy. Our goal is to break ground this fall and the project should take approximately 12-18 months to complete. We are very excited about this new project and we know you will be too! Stay tuned for project updates! Sincerely,

David Gill | Erica Strahm | Danyele Easterhaus
