  • Many home improvements require a building permit from the City of Tecumseh's Development Services Department. Before making any additions or improvements to property in the city, it is important to check if any permits are required for the project. The Master Deed or Covenants and Restrictions should also be checked, as there may be some restrictions that apply for a particular development
  • Homeowners' associations may also have an Architectural Review Committee that serves as the review board for any projects that affect the property.  This committee usually requires a sketch of proposed projects for their review. Once they grant approval the approved drawing with signature(s) needs to be brought back to the Development Services Department
