Do I need a permit?

Many jobs and projects require building, plumbing, electrical, mechanical and/or zoning permits.  All new buildings, additions and most remodels require permits.  Projects like painting and floor coverings do not require permits.

What codes apply?

Park Township has a zoning ordinance that governs what can be done with a piece of property.  The Michigan Building Code 2015 and the Michigan Residential Code 2015 regulates how buildings and structures are constructed.
