Building & Construction Permits

We issue permits and inspect work to make sure all buildings in the City of Kalamazoo are safe and meet our community standards. If you're renovating, redeveloping, or building something new, make sure you have the proper permits before you get started and schedule inspections at the appropriate time. If you're not sure where you start, our team can also help guide you through the process with free preliminary project reviews and other support. You can find information on application and permit fees in the Community Planning & Economic Development Fee Schedule.
