On Friday morning, June 24th, our township trustees, and thousands of other folks welcomed the Tanger Outlet Mall to Berkshire Township. This development has opened the door to many economic opportunities for our community. The goal of your trustees is to see high quality, viable development occur near the I-71 interchange at 36-37, while maintaining the less dense  and residential atmosphere as you move away from that exit. We know that it was the comfortable, rural feel that brought many of you to the area in the first place and hope you will work with us as we move forward in this next chapter of Berkshire Township's development. Come to Trustee meetings, share YOUR opinions and expertise, and help us as we strive to make this a great place to live and work.
