Too bad it's called "Saginaw Township"...It immediately gets preconceived notions by its name alone. This is NOT the city of Saginaw. It's a clean, safe and relatively friendly place to live. My family and I could afford to live in many other communities, but we chose to live hear for the low cost of living, the safe neighborhoods and the 'big city' conveniences like shops and restaurants that are a 7-10 minute car ride away. Lots of township parks (including a splash park for the kids), rail trail, and arguably America's best mosquito control commission (Saginaw County).

Born & raised in Saginaw North Charter Township, and attended public community high school at Heritage H.S. (Only public H.S. w/in zoning area designated as Saginaw Charter Township). I consider it home, but would NOT recommend buying or searching for property in this area unless you are strictly looking for affordable housing due to relocation &/or family residence. Stay w/in the confines of the township. Neighborhood safety decreases and crime increases quickly after crossing the Saginaw city limit & continues to get worse the more eastern you travel...
I liked growing up in Saginaw Township. There are many opportunities to play organized sports. Some of these sports are baseball, basketball, soccer and now lacrosse. Most where through the Saginaw Township recreation program. It would have been nice if there where more opportunities within the public schools. In White Pine Middle there are very few sports programs. Then when you get to high school your expected to already know the sport well enough to try out for a varsity program.

The other things that needs to be improve is the nightlife. Once you able to drive the local GoKart/putty golf is too childish. So the only thing to do around the township is the movies and that can get really expensive, costing as much $12 a ticket.
