The Building Department issues all building permits within the limits of the City of Ypsilanti. It is important to secure a building permit to ensure that your project is structurally sound and complies with building and zoning codes.
The Building Department has a minimum of 10 business days to review permit applications. Please allow the necessary time when scheduling your project.
A building permit is required for new construction, alterations, and structural changes to an existing building. If you are not sure if your project requires a building permit, please contact our office.
