Planning on doing some home or farm improvements?

Before going forward with the project, please check with the Zoning Administrator to learn if your project requires a building permit. A permit provides legal permission to start construction of a building project in accordance with your district’s guidelines stated in the Eckford Township Zoning Ordinance. Obtaining a building a permit will ensure that the proposed construction meets minimum safety standards and allows code officials to protect the public by reducing potential hazards of unsafe construction. Please allow at least 30 days for the building permit process. If you have any questions concerning a building project or zoning issue, please call David Malloch at 269-781-7436.
