Bruce Township Reviews

13 reviews
All Categories
As a township, we don't have a dedicated police department; we rely on the Macomb County Sherrif and the Michigan State Police Department. Since we are a rural community, crime is very low. We have had some breaki in's in the past, however, the law enforcement addressed it and it happens very sporadically.

Safety isn't an issue. People can feel safe walking our dirt roads at nighttime, being sensible and wearing reflective clothing. People are friendly and look out for one another. Neighborhoods get together quite frequently to socialize. Overall, if you're an adult, things here are great!
Review Bruce Township
As a teenager, there isn't much to do in terms of recreation. The school district is one of the largest in terms of area in Michigan. As a result, even getting together with friends from school can be a problem. The downtown area doesn't provide a place for teens to congregate and that would be ideal for meeting up and hanging out with friends.

The athletics at the high school are outstanding; football and hockey state champions and several other sports compete on that same level. The campus is currently split into two locations which makes in necessary to drive approximately 2 miles to get to classes. The community just passed a bond to begin construction on a new campus that has all classes together.

I'm looking forward to moving away to college, not because Bruce Township is bad, but because I prefer a more active community. When I'm older, I would consider raising a family here. For now though, I want to experience the world and different cultures.
The local businesses help drive our town's economy and are apart of the people in the community. If you want to find people, the local hot spot is a restaurant called the Huddle. We have a grocery store/hardware store that is very convenient with the location as well as its products. Additionally, we have 2 gas station that serves the community and includes slurpees that all the teenagers love to go and get before football games or schools. The local businesses make up part of our community and without them our town wouldn't be the same. We would look like a ghost town without these businesses.
