The Morton Township Master Plan is intended to guide the future growth and development of Morton Township over the next ten (10) to fifteen (15) years. The primary impetus for the development of this plan is the Township's desire to ensure that the community continues to be a place which exemplifies all of the desired characteristics associated with a resort, rural, and agriculturally based lifestyle while simultaneously providing for measured growth and economic development.
