So you need a permit, what next?
- Get your plans together.
- Use a survey, or draw an accurate site plan. Show your property lines, all existing buildings, dimensions, and where you propose to put what. The main purpose of the site plan is to review the project for compliance with the Zoning Ordinance.
- Submit your application and plans to the Community & Neighborhood Services office by dropping it off at City Hall, Third Floor or by emailing it to email@example.com.
- Once submitted it may take 2 to 4 weeks to get the plan reviewed and approved.
For New Residential Construction and Additions
For new one and two family dwellings or additions thereto, and accessory buildings in excess of 200 square feet (Michigan Construction Code), please complete both the building application and see the Plan Review List and Requirements for Submission of Sealed Plans. Please note permits are issued separately for Building, Electrical, Mechanical, and Plumbing work.
Plumbing, Electrical, and Mechanical Work
Permits are also required for plumbing, mechanical and electrical work. Unless you really know what you’re doing, it is often best to leave this type of work to the professionals. Find a list of those applications here.
