Inspections:  Permit holders must ensure that job sites are accessible to inspectors and that all “social distancing” guidelines are met.  Failure to provide a safe environment will result in a disapproval and require a reinspection.  During an inspection, only required personnel should be on-site.  For jobs in an occupied home, no inspections can be scheduled where an occupant is sick, has been exposed to the virus or under quarantine.
 
Thanks for helping keep us all safe while we perform the required inspections!

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 nine 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 and the City of East Grand Rapids.
