Commerce Township Background:
Commerce Charter Township is a charter township of Oakland County, and suburb of Detroit, located in Michigan.The population was 40,186 at the 2010 census. The terrain is rolling hills with large expanses of flat farmland and suburban development. The Huron River runs mostly north-south through the township. Commerce was formerly a weekend and summer resort for Detroiters because of the area’s small inland lakes and peaceful seclusion. Due to recent development the cottages are now all permanent homes. There has been a sharp increase in population in the last few years. This has mostly been on or near the several lakes and golf courses. Much of Proud Lake State Recreation Area is within the township. The northern terminus of M-5 is in Commerce.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the township has a total area of 29.8 square miles. Out of that, 27.6 square miles is land and 2.3 square miles or 7.61%, is water.
Commerce Township Trivia:
In 1994, David Hahn, a 17-year-old Eagle Scout, constructed a makeshift nuclear reactor in his backyard in Commerce Township. He exposed maybe even as many as 40,000 people in the area to radioactive materials. This drew the attention of the EPA. The event became a short-lived media sensation. A book by Ken Silverstein called The Radioactive Boy Scout was written about the incident and published in 2004.
