Pittsfield Charter Township is a quiet and cozy place to live. The neighbors are very friendly and I feel safe living here. Here, we have Pittsfield Charter Township taxes, which are lower than Ann Arbor, but we are still a part of the Ann Arbor public school system, so we get the benefit of having one of the best school systems around the area. We are perfectly centered inside the areas of Saline, Ypsilanti, Ann Arbor, and Milan. We are just a few minutes from Eastern Michigan University, and only 20 minutes from the University of Michigan.

It's an incredibly diverse area with amenities for all. You get the Best of Ann Arbor, Saline, and Ypsilanti plus premier schools, excellent parks, plenty of trails, low crime, caring local government, and more.
One of the few places around Ann Arbor where you can still buy or rent a fairly affordable home with amazing recreational opportunities including a lot of pathways.
