Community Profile

Located in the northwest corner of Macomb County, Bruce Township is bordered by Oakland County

to the west, Lapeer County to the north, Washington Township to the south and Armada Township

to the east.

Organized in 1833, Bruce Township has retained its rural, agricultural based character. Growth has

been steady.

Bruce Township’s 2010 population of 8,158 residents are serviced by commercial centers in or near

the neighboring Village of Romeo. Year round recreation activities can be enjoyed at nearby Stony

Creek Metropark in Washington Township and several area golf courses.

In 1990, sixty-seven percent of the land in the Township was dedicated to agriculture or remained

vacant. The Ford Motor Company’s Proving Grounds and Test Track comprises more than six square

miles in the west-central portion of the Township. M-53 provides the main north-south link in western Macomb County

connecting Bruce Township with the urbanized commercial, industrial, and residential centers to the south. 32 Mile Road and

I-69 provide east-west access to the north. Romeo Airport, a small general aviation facility, is located to the southeast in

neighboring Ray Township.
