Alex Arends, Township Supervisor
Located just four miles north of downtown Grand Rapids, Alpine Township is still primarily a rural community. Perhaps that explains the warmth and friendliness that extends all the way to the Township Hall. Blending in with our agriculture is just the right amount of residential, commercial and industrial development.
