Building Services Now Operating through Cascade Township

Residential home addition building services (website)

As a reminder, all building services are now conducted through Cascade Township – a move that reduces wait times and offers more resources for Plainfield residents and builders at a lower cost to the community.

Residents and builders who have questions about construction and building codes, need to schedule an inspection or apply for an online building permit must contact Cascade Township by visiting or Cascade Township Hall, 5920 Tahoe Drive SE, or calling 616.949.3765. Note: paper copies of applications and plans should be submitted directly to Plainfield Charter Township offices. 

Cascade Township’s 13-member Building Department can serve residents and builders more quickly and efficiently, resulting in shorter wait times for plan reviews and permits at a reduced cost to Plainfield Township applicants.

Since 2012, Plainfield Township has successfully partnered with Cascade Township to issue permits and conduct inspections for the installation of new or replacement plumbing and electrical and mechanical equipment at residences and businesses in Plainfield. These services will continue to be provided by Cascade Township.
