Macomb MI Homes & Real Estate
Macomb Township is a civil township within Metro Detroit in Macomb County in the U.S. state of Michigan. As of the 2020 Census, the township's population was 91,663, making it the most-populated general law township in the state of Michigan, and third most-populated township, overall, in the state after the charter townships of Clinton and Canton.
The early founders of Macomb Township arrived in the early 19th century in search of flat and fertile farmland, like that near the Clinton River. Many of these early settlers were of German descent, and the German influences remain today. The Township of Macomb was officially approved by the Legislative Council on March 7, 1834.
Macomb Township was also a large part of the lumber and logging industry of Southeast Michigan in the late 19th century and early 20th century. Logs would be transported south from Wolcott Mill in Ray Township, down the Middle Branch Clinton River to sawmills. This route became known as Romeo Plank, and is the name of the modern-day road that runs down the same route.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the township has a total area of 36.3 square miles (94 km2), of which 36.3 square miles (94 km2) is land and 0.04 square miles (0.10 km2) (0.06%) is water. The area is predominantly a mix of flat fertile land and swampy wetland, but beginning with the housing boom in the late 1990s, the area has been largely suburbanizing.
The public school districts that serve residents of Macomb Township are Chippewa Valley Schools, L'Anse Creuse Public Schools, New Haven Community Schools and Utica Community Schools. For public library services, the Township is served by the Clinton-Macomb Public Library district.
