Mission Statement

LINC believes citizen participation is important and needed in the decision-making process of the Township with specific regard, but not limited to, how residents want our community to develop.

Memorial for John Veenstra
 In cooperation with John's family, LINC is collecting donations to fund a suitable memorial to John.  Our current plan is to provide a park bench and bike rack at the new Farmer's Market.  We are open to other suggestions.  Donations can

CWD UPDATE 9/20/2016:

Chronic wasting disease (CWD) continues to spread with another new case discovered in Meridian Township bringing the total number of infected deer to eight.  The Michigan DNR has expanded the Management Zone and Core Area.
Although this disease can not be transmitted to humans, it can spread rapidly through the deer population leading to widespread infection.  The most reliable method of control is to dramatically reduce the size of the local deer population. Property owners in the township are encouraged to participate in the effort by allowing the DNR  to access your property in order to cull the herd in a humane manner.

Solarize Meridian


A presentation on bringing solar power to residents of Meridian Township.


Thursday, August 16, 2018

6:45 pm - 7:45 pm


Haslett Library Kiwanis Community Room


Meridian Township has a goal of obtaining 25% of our electricity from renewable energy by 2025. To make it easier to install a photovoltaic system, the Meridian Energy Team has identified twelve solar installers that have offered to provide a rooftop solar electric system for $3/watt or less. A 4000 watt system would cost $12,000 before credits. Presentations will be provided by a Meridian resident who currently owns a solar system and volunteers from the Meridian Energy Team.
