Due to an uprising in Larceny From Automobiles in the Grass Lake area, please be extra vigilant in making sure your vehicles and homes are locked and secure prior to turning in for the night. Please also report any suspicious activity to 911 so a deputy or state trooper can be dispatched to the area. Several vehicles were gone through last night in the Wolf Lake Highlands subdivision.

Grass Lake is Jackson county's fastest growing community. Located between the cities of Ann Arbor and Jackson, Michigan, it is strategically placed with easy access to the Detroit area businesses and Metropolitan airport, the University of Michigan, Michigan State university, Spring Arbor University and several other colleges and community colleges. Nearby are numerous golf courses, Michigan International Speedway and hospitals and health care centers. Grass Lake is home of the Michigan Center for the Photographic Arts and is designated as a "Cool City Neighborhood." Township residents live amidst farmlands, woodlands and lakes, thus making it a desirable community to raise a family or enjoy life in a rural setting.  Recently, the township has experienced a rapid growth of residential developments.  It recently completed the building of a new high school facility with state of the art classrooms and technology, along with an entire new athletic complex to support the influx of new families.
