Lyon Township was founded on March 7, 1834 as a general law township.  The Township Board of Trustees approved a resolution on January 15, 1980 to make Lyon Township a charter township.  The seven member Board of Trustees, consisting of a supervisor, clerk, treasurer, and four trustees, directs the Township.


Lyon Township Municipal Center

Lyon Township is located in the southwest corner of Oakland County, which is in southeast Michigan.  Approximately 32 square miles in size, the Township is bordered by Dixboro Road on the west,  Napier Road to the east, Pontiac Trail to the north, and Eight Mile Road to the south.  Neighboring communities are the cities of South Lyon, Novi, and Wixom and the townships of Milford, Green Oak, and Salem.   I-96 bisects the northern portion of the Township, running parallel to Grand River Avenue.

The population of Lyon Township in the 2010 census was 14,545, an increase of 31.6% from the 2000 census.  Population growth has continued to increase due to numerous residential developments being created in the Township.

Two school districts serve Lyon Township: South Lyon Community Schools and Northville Community Schools.  The Township is served by five post offices: New Hudson, South Lyon, Northville, Wixom, and Milford.
