An urban township (in Michigan, Minnesota and Ohio) or urban town (in Wisconsin) is a designation of a unit of local government in several midwestern U.S. states. Generally, an urban township is afforded more local authority than that of a township and less than that of a city. Often, urban townships use this authority for greater economic development. (In Michigan, an urban township is different from a Charter township.) For more information on the specifics in each state, see the respective entries below:
