June 19, 2018 - Hamburg Township would like to thank H.E.R.O for another successful Hamburg Township Family Fun Fest and for allowing us the opportunity to have a booth at this event!

I hope everyone had an opportunity to visit the Hamburg Township 2020 Master Plan Update booth at the Hamburg Township Family Fun Fest this weekend. This event was a great kickoff to summer and to the start of the public outreach portion of the 2020 Master Plan Update. Planning and Zoning Staff and Master Plan Steering Committee Members had a great time meeting and talking with people about the future of Hamburg Township. Don’t worry if you did not have a chance to stop by the booth this weekend, there will be other opportunities this summer to get you opinions heard. You can start by visiting  the Hamburg Township 2020 Master Plan Webpage at and filling out our community survey. Or by stopping by the Hamburg Township offices for a hard copy of the community survey to fill out and submit. We are excited to hear from you on what you want Hamburg Township to be.   Thank you again for the great weekend! - Scott Pacheco, Planning and Zoning.

The first public outreach event is on June 14-16 at the Hamburg Township Family Fun Fest. Hamburg Township Planning and Zoning Staff along with Master Plan Steering Committee members will be staffing a booth on Thursday and Friday from 3:00 pm to 8:00 pm and Saturday 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm at the Hamburg Township Family Fun Fest. Stop by and talk to someone about the Master Plan process, pick up free give away items, or fill out a survey. Don't you want to be involved in shaping the future of your community?
