A Different Kind of Pint for St. Paddy's Month

Don't have a pint — donate it to the American Red Cross blood drive instead, when they set up shop at the library on Friday, March 11. You can sign up now at the Reception Desk, or just walk in any time between 11:00AM-4:45PM. There's a critical need for blood right now, so please drop by to donate. And be sure to bring a friend. (You must be 17 years of age and able to donate a full pint of blood to be eligible.)

Canton Township Needs Your Input

Canton is undertaking a Five Year Consolidated Planning process to determine the strategic goals for the Township’s housing and community development needs and how to best use its resources to address those needs. In addition, a portion of the planning process will include an Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI) so that important fair housing programs and policies can be reviewed. All of this information will be used to complete plans mandated by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

The most vital component of this planning process is the feedback provided by residents regarding the Township’s fair housing programs, affordable housing needs, homeless and special housing needs, and other non-housing community development needs. Below are two links to brief online surveys for you to record your input. All responses will be anonymous.
