Welcome to the Charter Township of Redford web site! Redford Township is a dynamic community of nearly 52,000 people located in about 11.25 square miles on the western border of Michigan's largest city, Detroit. Many Redford citizens are second- or third-generation residents. After growing up in the Township, they want their kids to grow up here too. Also, these citizens often say they want to give back to the community that gave them so much. This explains the high rate of citizen involvement in local government and the success of many neighborhood civic and church groups. New, younger families are attracted to Redford's central location. We are a short drive from anywhere in the region. We have a wide mix of people of all ages, races, ethnic and religious backgrounds; Redford Township reflects the face of America.
