Tuscarora Township encompasses the un-incorporated area known as Indian River and is a residential and recreation community. With its lakes and rivers, State and Township Parks, snowmobile trails and bike paths (under development), Tuscarora Township has year round interest and is the place to live and play.

The beautiful Tuscarora Township Municipal Building was built in 1994, replacing the original municipal building that was built in 1902. The Township Municipal Building also houses the Tuscarora Township Police and the Indian River Area Library.

Veterans Pier Project Update – January 20, 2014

We are so pleased to announce that the required matching funds were received to have the Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund Grant award completed for the Veterans Pier Project.

The bidding process for the design engineering phase was completed with the firm Gourdie-Fraser, Inc. presenting the best bid. Preliminary site plan drawings have been completed and are being reviewed by a newly appointed Veterans Pier Project Construction Coordination Committee. Monthly meetings on the 3rd Thursday of each month are scheduled for anyone interested to attend this Parks & Recreation Commission sub-committee discussion. These meetings and any requested “Special” meetings will be held at the Township Hall. See “Meetings Schedules” for updates.

The success of the generosity given to this project will provide for enhancements to the DeVoe Beach area where Veterans Pier will be located. Our goal is for construction to begin in early Spring 2014 with completion by July 4, 2014. We look forward to this significant facility with universal accessibility as the priority. Our Veterans Pier will say Welcome to all and provide a symbol of gratitude to our Nation’s Veterans…past, present and future!
