On Thursday, August 5, area residents are invited to Heritage Park for a “Night Out” from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. with their community partners:  the Canton Police Department, the Canton Public Library, Canton Coalition for Inclusive Communities (CCIC) and Canton Leisure Services. 

These Canton community organizations proudly present this year’s National Night Out, featuring “A Walk Around the Globe with Canton Coalition for Inclusive Communities (CCIC).” This annual campaign promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, better places to live. 

This year’s event will be held around the ponds and will showcase Canton’s diversity by highlighting various cultures within our community. All ages are encouraged to join us for this evening filled with live music, an interactive Canton Public Safety vehicle display, refreshments available for purchase, and games provided by this year’s event sponsors.

Hello Neighbors!

As you all are aware, we have had a lot or rain recently, and some pretty severe flooding. Wayne County residents can now call 2-1-1 to find help cleaning up debris from flood-damaged homes. Operators will connect residents with volunteer and faith-based organizations that are able to assist them with debris clean-up. Additionally, I encourage you to sign up for Nixle updates at nixle.com. You will receive text alerts from Canton’s police and fire departments, including severe weather alerts, as well as flood-related road closures and other relevant public safety information.

The following two initiatives will meet the Board goal of increased accessibility to Township meetings and communications for all residents. The Board will begin meeting in person in the Board Room on the first floor of the Canton Administration Building beginning in August. The meetings will also be available via Zoom, for those who would like to participate from home. The hybrid meetings will take place for the foreseeable future. And, as always, you can watch the meetings on your government access channel and on the Canton website, www.canton-mi.org/206. They are aired a day or two following the meeting.

Lastly, I will be launching a new e-newsletter this month called “Supervisor’s Notes.” You can sign up to receive it via email at www.canton-mi.org. It will be emailed to you at least once a month, and maybe more, depending on what is going on in the community. I also encourage you to follow our Canton Township Government Facebook page, Facebook.com/CantonGovernment for up-to-the-minute information on all things Canton.
