Welcome to Alpine Township where spring is less than a month away
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. Thank you for visiting us, and if you have any unanswered questions, please email us, call us at 616-784-1262, or stop by. Office hours are Monday - Friday 8:00 A.M. - 5:00 P.M. Our staff will be happy to assist you. For a less formal look at our Township, please visit our blog at Alpine Township Website Companion. You'll enjoy it.
