The Township is currently updating its Parks and Recreation Master Plan. This plan will help guide decisions in the Township for the next five (5) years, 2018--2022. The Parks and Recreation Master Plan is used to obtain grants and other funding for parks and recreation projects. Park improvements have been made possible though a combination of grant funding and the Township's existing recreation millage of 0.25 mills (approximately $28.50 per household). 

We would like to ask a few questions about your experiences and opinions regarding the programs, services, and facilities that Hamburg Township offers. Your input in this plan is crucial to helping Hamburg make the best investments in parks and recreation --- this anonymous survey will take about 15 minutes to complete.

Thank you for your participation!
