COVID-19 Update: OCS

AlertYpsilanti Township Offices are CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC until further notice.

Employees will be available by phone or email at this time. If this changes, we will provide updates.

Ypsilanti Township's Office of Community Standards has temporarily suspended housing inspections and building inspections inside occupied dwellings. This action was taken in an effort to help contain the potential spread of the Novel Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) among residents in the community and to minimize the risk of exposure for employees and their families. This action will be evaluated on an ongoing basis and will remain in effect until the level of risk diminishes.

Inspections at vacant structures and commercial buildings will be evaluated and likely serviced as scheduled.

Customers are being notified and inspections will be rescheduled at a later date. Certificates of Compliance for rental housing units will be extended at no cost or penalty to owners and tenants. We apologize for any inconvenience and greatly appreciate your cooperation and understanding as this global pandemic plays out.

Hard Hat ImageIf you are planning on building a deck, porch, replace your hot water tank, furnace or other home improvement a permit is needed. A building permit must be reviewed - please allow a minimum of 5 - 10 business days from the time you submit your application to the time you can pick it up and start work. Remember if you, the homeowner, are having work performed by a contractor the contractor should pull the permit. This is a safe guard for you, the homeowner. It doesn't cost any more money nor take any more time for the contractor to do so.
