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.

The Office of Community Standards (OCS) consists of the Building Department, Planning & Zoning Department, and Ordinance Department working together to uphold every aspect of community standards, abate public nuisances and correct zoning and land use issues. This department is responsible to verify safe compliance with codes that are designed to protect the public and ensure safe construction.

The Office of Community Standards is overseen by Director Michael Radzik, who also serves as Director of Police Services.
