NARRATIVE PROFILE

History

         Galien Township took its name from the Galien River which had, in turn, been named by the
early French explorers for Father Ren’e Brehant de Galine’e, a map maker by origin and a good friend of
Father Marquette. The French name Galinee was “Americanized” in 1836 to become Galien. The entire
Township was once part of the “Galien Woods” -- an extremely dense forest of maple, beech, white oak
and black walnut trees. The only thoroughfares available were those made by animals which were,
subsequently, adopted by the local Indian tribes. Interestingly enough, these roadways became the
settling points for many of the pioneers.
         The first settler in the Township was Samuel Garwood, who had been attracted by the dense
woods and the gentle waters of the Galien River. Captivated by the beautiful area, John Johnson and
James Wilson decided to join Garwood as the next permanent settlers. The latter built the Township’s
first sawmill in 1836.
         Galien Township, originally part of Bertrand then later Weesaw Township, was incorporated as a
separate township on February 29, 1844. William Burns was elected the first supervisor and Samuel
Garwood became the first treasurer. In 1861, the small village of Galien was laid out within the
Township and became the center of all business activities. The appearance and character of the
Township has changed little over the past century-and-a-half.

Observations

         Galien Township is everything one would expect to find in an old-fashioned, rural setting. The
Township is beautifully located on U.S. 12, which provides good access to its new industrial park. Located
near I-94 and U.S. 31, it is only a few miles from the shores of Lake Michigan. Although the Township
itself provides little entertainment, the larger surrounding communities offer art centers, antique stores,
theaters, a botanical garden and shopping malls. Galien’s location provides easy access to several
transportation service providers.
         Although industries are welcomed in the industrial park located in the Village, the community
would like to preserve its status quo as a traditional farming community, enjoying the resulting quality of
life.
       For some, the degree of social control in this small community may be a drawback -- for others it
provides safety and comfort. For those who like the outdoors and prefer the quiet after a busy day at the
office, Galien Township is a pleasant place to live.

Community Vision

In the next two decades, the community would like to:

        A.   Maintain the status quo of a traditional farming community.
        B.   Attract industry to the industrial park.
        C.   Install a municipal water system to serve the community and its industrial park.
        D.   Construct a driveway to ease entry into the industrial park.
        E.   Encourage residential growth to help cover needed expenditures.


Agenda of the Community Strategic Plan

There is no current strategic plan available.

TAXES2

In March 1998, Michigan voters approved a new tax structure (Proposal A). The following table provides
a simplistic look at the taxes currently levied within this community. There will be several years of
adjustment that will result in changes to the levied taxes. Property tax is based now upon taxable value,
not state equalized value.
