Frederic Township’s mission is to provide its residents and business community with municipal leadership and services in a cost effective and professional manner to ensure the Township remains an affordable, safe and enjoyable place to live, work, visit and raise families.
With the headwaters of the Au Sable River near its eastern border, the Manistee River on its western border and thousands of acres of rolling terrain in between – Frederic Township is an “Outdoor Paradise” we know and love as “the township of two rivers”. The township offers a prime location for local businesses and housing developments. It is conveniently located in Crawford County , just one mile off I-75 between the cities of Grayling and Gaylord. It is one hour from Mackinaw City, Traverse City or Bay City. Whether you are looking for your haven or your next vacation destination, Frederic is and will continue to be a beautiful place to visit, live and/or raise your family.
Frederic Township is home to numerous outdoor activities such as trout fishing, hunting, canoeing, kayaking, horseback riding, camping, mushrooming and hiking. In addition it also offers hundreds of miles of snowmobile/ORV trails that are easily accessible from the village of Frederic. Our trails are a central network that will connect you to our neighboring communities as well; such as Grayling, Gaylord, Kalkaska, Lovells, Lewiston, and Mancelona.
The Village of Frederic is also the home of “Frederic Music Festival”, the annual event takes place the last full weekend of June. For more information on this annual event visit http://www.fredericmusicfest.org/about-the-venue.html.
Frederic Township has embraced Michigan’s legalization of medical and recreational cannabis since the medical program’s inception in 2016. The Township was one of the first communities to “opt-in” to the State’s medical marijuana program- and naturally, one of the first to “opt-in” to the State’s recreational marijuana program. The Township remains committed to the development of those programs moving forward.
In fact, the Township continues its plans to expand both programs, and plenty of property remains available for business development. Pursuant to both ordinances, the Township is open to unlimited marijuana grow, processing, secured transportation and safety compliance laboratory operations.
