Springfield Charter Township is a charter township of Oakland County in the U.S. state of Michigan. As of the 2010 census, the township population was 13,940. The Township has no incorporated villages and five unincorporated communities within. Springfield Township transitioned from a General Law Township to a Charter Township under Michigan's Charter Township Act on April 1, 1986. The township was established by the Michigan Legislature on March 2, 1836. Springfield, one of the first settlements in the area, began with a hotel along the Detroit and Saginaw Turnpike, now known as Dixie Highway. The Detroit and Milwaukee Railway (now part of the Canadian National Railway) was built in 1856, and two stations were in the township, in Andersonville and Davisburg. The railroad provided a major impetus to growth in the late 1960s and 1970s. Residents began commuting to Pontiac and Flint for employment in the developing automotive factories, marking the beginning of the township's decline. The decline would unexpectedly be reversed in the 1960s with the construction of Interstate 75. In the early 1980s, a comprehensive review of the Master Plan and the Zoning Map was done. As a result, a revised Master Plan was adopted in the early 1990s, incorporating natural resource protection information and incorporated natural resource information into the Masterplan. The current zoning ordinance serves as a basis for the current ordinance for the township. It was adopted with an different 13 different zoning districts in 1965, which contained an entirely new zoning ordinance in 1972.
