Community Planning & Development

The Department of Community Planning and Development is comprised of four divisions: Building, Code Enforcement, Planning and Zoning, and Rental Housing. 

The Building Division performs residential and commercial building inspections and interprets, administers and enforces the provisions of the adopted Michigan Building Code and Michigan Residential Code.  The Building Division also oversees the issuance of electrical, mechanical, and plumbing permits.

The Code Enforcement Division enforces the code of ordinances.

The Planning and Zoning Division is responsible for overseeing the Master Plan.

The Rental Housing Division performs inspections of rental housing units and maintains related records to ensure compliance with the Township’s ordinances and adopted codes. Inspections are done in compliance with the International Property Maintenance Code, Meridian Township Code of Ordinances, and the Michigan Building and Residential Codes.
