Over the past 40 years, PTP has been present at more than 1,200+ meetings related to Township matters. Most often, it’s been current PTP Board President, Mark Nadolski, who has shouldered the massive responsibility of attending these meetings and keeping other PTP members and the community updated. We need more people to step up and help attend the public meetings of the Township Board, the Planning Commission, Parks Committee and Zoning Board of Appeals so that we can share our opinions and keep abreast of vital issues in the community.

To attend a Township-related meeting, visit the Township website for the meeting schedule and where you can also sign up to have agendas distributed to you.

We need all manner of volunteers. Let us know what what interests you by emailing
