The goal of the Building Inspection Department is to protect the Health, Safety and Welfare of our citizens through professional enforcement of the Michigan Building Codes. Cascade Township has a full time staff of seven inspectors and two clerical employees. They review all plans, issue permits and inspect and maintain records on all construction projects. Our inspectors are all registered by the State of Michigan in one or more of the building trades as well as plan review.
In addition to the above, we also issue permits to connect to the water and/or sewer system in Cascade Charter Township.
Cascade’s Building Department is somewhat unique in that we issue permits and make inspections for other communities on a contractual basis. Those other communities include Grand Rapids Township, Lowell Township, Ada Township, Vergennes Township, Plainfield Township, the City of East Grand Rapids and the City of Lowell. If you aren’t familiar with which trades we do for which community, please call our office or refer to our website.
