Meeting Dates






Our Building Department will be holding our 3nd annual Project Beautification contest this Summer, which will choose a property in each of the following categories; namely, mobile home, commercial, farm, residential, and  rural residential, that is considered well kept by the property owner.

We will be taking nominations in each category.  First place winners (judged by the Swan Creek Garden Club) will be presented and photographed with an attractive sign on the property and an acknowledgement in the township newsletter, on the township website and facebook and an honorary award at a Township Board meeting.  Also our 5 winners will be published by the Monroe Evening News with a nice article on our contest.

To nominate a Berlin Township property owner for an award, either mail photos to Berlin Charter Township at 8000 Swan View Rd., Newport, MI  48166 or e-mail to or, attention Mary Jo or Kim with the address of the nominated site and reasons for your nomination by: July 31th, 2017.  Yes, you can nominate yourself and cannot win 2 years in a row!

Our goal is to recognize those residents who enhance the appearance of our community in a positive way and encourage other residents to do likewise.


·          Property must be within Township limits.

·          Houses for sale shall not be eligible for nomination. 

We would like to thank everyone who participated last year, including the Swan Creek Garden Club, it was a huge success and a lot of fun.  Berlin Township residents and businesses should pride themselves on our community. 

A special thanks all the local businesses who donated to our contest last year, and anyone who is interested in donating to our contest this year can mail their donation to Berlin Charter Township at 8000 Swan View Drive, Newport, MI  48166.
