In April 2017, the Waterford Township Board of Trustees held a Town Hall forum to share information and receive input from the community regarding the possibility of building a community center.  The video for this meeting can be viewed on-demand at the Township's PEG channel website.


A survey was posted on the Waterford Township website and mailed to Waterford Township taxpayers with the Summer 2017 tax bill. Survey results were utilized by the Community Center committee to help determine how residents use or wish to use a community center in the Waterford Township Community.

Shall the Charter Township of Waterford, Oakland County, Michigan, borrow a sum of money not to exceed Thirty Million Dollars ($30,000,000) and issue its general obligation unlimited tax bonds therefor for the purpose of acquiring, constructing, equipping and furnishing new community center facilities to be located on the Charter Township campus on Civic Center Drive, and improving the site thereof?
