Building Department Information
The Building Department which is a part of the City's Community Development Department, is responsible for the administration and enforcement of the Building Code, Property Maintenance Code, Mechanical Code, Plumbing Code, Electrical Code, Energy Code, Barrier Free Design Code, Zoning Code, and other related city ordinance. All permit applications are processed by this office.
If you have any questions regarding the permitting or inspection process, please call the Community Development Department at (616) 772-0872.
Permit applications can be mailed, e-mailed, faxed, or dropped off at City Hall. We recommend calling our office before you take the time to fill out the applications because many properties outside of the City limits still have a Zeeland address!
