Pittsfield Charter Township, recently named the eighth best suburb to live in Michigan by Niche, will host its annual Passport 2 Pittsfield Open House on Sunday, May 7, 2017 from 1:00-4:00 PM. All are welcome to visit the five Township facilities that will be open to the public: Township Hall (6201 W. Michigan Ave.), Public Safety (6227 W. Michigan Ave.), Utilities Field Office (4467 Concourse Drive), Community Center (701 W. Ellsworth Road), and Fire Station #3 (705 W. Ellsworth Road). This free event gives area residents an inside look into the Township. Each department will host family-friendly activities to show a sample of life in public service.
“In the last eight years, this event has come to symbolize the sense of place and community our administration has not only fostered and celebrated but also instituted successfully, as evidenced by the recent Niche community ratings,” noted Supervisor Mandy Grewal.
AAATA (The Ride) will provide free Park and Ride services for visitors to park and visit all facilities. Visitors will receive a P2P passport that can be stamped as they participate in each activity.
Activities will include:
- Live fire safety and sewer camera demonstrations
- Plant a seedling with a Master Gardener
- Compete in the Rec City Obstacle Course
- Make a Recycled Box City
- Climb into police cars, fire trucks, and construction trucks
- Raffles and giveaways, supported by local businesses
