Effective on Thursday, May 24, 2018, there are new Business Registration requirements for all commercial and industrial businesses located in Ypsilanti Township. Previously existing businesses may register at no cost and avoid building/fire safety inspections; the $200 registration fee and site inspection requirement will be waived if you register within 60 days.


Pre-Existing Businesses

Qualifying businesses may register with the Office of Community Standards (OCS) by completing and returning the form no later than Sunday, July 29, 2018.

The new ordinance requires all existing businesses to register within 60 days to avoid fees and inspections. If your business is registered by Sunday, July 29, 2018, the application fee will be waived and you will be exempt from inspection. Any building or zoning code violations that are reported or become known to exist after Sunday, July 29, 2018, will require a $200 registration fee and your business will be subject to zoning review, and building and fire code inspection.


New or Relocated Businesses

Newly established businesses are now required to register and undergo zoning verification and building/fire safety inspections. The registration fee is $200.

Existing businesses may also be required to register and undergo inspection for any of the following reasons:

1. Change of ownership
2. Relocation to a different physical space
3. Expansion or significant change of the use originally reported
