PLEASE NOTE: Pursuant to Executive Order 2020-21, Cascade Inspection Services has suspended activities through April 13th.
Online permit submittals and requests will not be available.  Should any “emergency” work be performed in compliance with the order those permits must be immediately submitted upon resumption of normal activity (R105.2.1).



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.
