    Default Northville/Plymouth city and township boundaries

    I was reading the Freep article about the sewer/septic tank debate in Northville (I was awesomely bored). Anyway I looked up the area in question (7 Mile & Clement) on Google Earth with the City Boundaries feature on, and it appears to be just outside of Northville in what I thought was Plymouth Township. What exactly are the outer boundaries of the two townships (not the actual cities of Northville and Plymouth)?

    Article, if you're awesomely bored as well:

    Plymouth Township runs from Joy to 5 Mile, and Northville Township from 5 Mile to 8 Mile. The eastern and western boundaries of both townships are roughly Haggerty and Napier respectively, but the roads curve a bit and the boundaries are straight.

    You can read the history behind the boundaries at the bottom of this page.

    As Bearinabox stated, the boundaries of Plymouth Township are about 2 miles south of the area discussed in the article.

    IIRC Clement is the western border of the city of Northville and Northville Township at that point.
