Thank you for visiting the website of the Charter Township of Comstock. If this is your first visit, we’d like to take this opportunity to mention a few things that make our Township special. A community of 35 square miles in Northeastern Kalamazoo County, our Township is located in the Southwestern region of Michigan. East of the City of Kalamazoo, we are served by highways I-94 and M-96. Within our Township, economic growth has been fast-paced, with concentrations in auto stamping and parts, service-oriented businesses and specialty and industrial machine shops. Featuring a number of greenhouses, we’ve been dubbed the, “Bedding Plant Capital of the World” and further live up to this moniker with our countless lakes, streams, trails and parks. The Charter Township of Comstock is continuously growing and changing, so be sure to visit us often to keep up with the latest developments!
