The Building Department is responsible for issuing all building permits and oversees the required inspections for existing and new construction projects and the enforcement of building and zoning codes to ensure quality development. We also review temporary and permanent sign applications, commercial tenant change of occupancy, and land use permits.
The Department coordinates applications to the Planning Commission and Zoning Board of Appeals. We serve as the Township’s primary point of contact for citizens, developers, and members of the business community with questions regarding the Township’s Zoning Ordinance and land use regulations.
The Building Department telephone number is 248-625-8111 and the fax number is 248-620-2481.
