Located just four miles north of downtown Grand Rapids, Alpine Township is still primarily a rural community. Perhaps that explains the warmth and friendliness that extends all the way to the Township Hall. Blending in with our agriculture is just the right amount of residential, commercial and industrial development. Thank you for visiting us. If you have any unanswered questions, please email us, call us at 616-784-1262, or stop by. Office hours are Monday - Friday 8:00 A.M. - 5:00 P.M. Our staff will be happy to assist you.
