Get Involved

Want to stay informed about your local government or serve your community? Plainfield Township offers opportunities for you to stay updated on Township news and join its boards, committees and commissions.

The Township produces a weekly e-newsletter delivered to your inbox each Thursday. The e-newsletter features updates on parks and recreation, road and utility improvements, tips for homeowners, local government news and much more. Visit to sign up today.

The Township has several boards, committees and commissions community members can serve on, including the Planning Commission, Zoning Board of Appeals, and Brownfield Redevelopment Authority. The Township’s citizen advisory committees consider matters related to Township programs and operations, making reports and recommendations to the Board of Trustees. These committees focus on areas such as parks and recreation and public safety.
