Fruitland Township is a zoned community. Before proceeding with any building or home improvement project, property owners are advised that they need to check with Fruitland Township to see that they are in compliance with zoning ordinances and the building code. The process may start with the filing of a zoning compliance form, which is available at the Fruitland Township Hall or on the Zoning Department page of this website.
(See Zoning Department for more information and applications)
Once Zoning approval has been established, a building permit is applied for and if the project meets the Uniform Building Code, a building permit is issued. The Building Inspector is Mr. Val Jensen II and he has office hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:30a.m. to 12:00p.m. Electrical inspections are completed by Jeff Johnson, who schedules his inspections. He can be reached at 231-329-4465. Mechanical and plumbing inspections are completed by Jim Callender, who schedules his inspections. He can be reached at 231-206-6563.
While most building permits are routinely approved, you are advised to start the approval process well before you plan to start to avoid any disappointment.
