LETTER from the TOWNSHIP TRUSTEE Mission Statement

Educate. Advocate. Collaborate. We will provide superior, reliable municipal services for the benefit of our citizens. We aim to be good stewards of both public resources and our natural environment as we embrace our heritage and yet recognize and act on opportunities to enhance the future quality of life in our community.

Vision Statement

Whether you are looking for a new adventure, peace and quiet or the perfect spot for a special celebration, MacGregor Park is that place for you. Nature in the Spring is one big burst of life. It is a wonderful time to explore the fresh air as the days get longer. Buds are popping, animals are moving and temperatures are warming up. It is such an important season to slow down and see the changes each day brings. Take advantage of what all Spring has to offer and immerse yourself in nature! Sincerely,

We aspire to be a customer-centered organization through innovation and sustainability.
