Property Maintenance & Development Services

NeighborhoodProperty Maintenance & Development Services defines its mission by drawing upon long-held traditional community values. These values are grounded in uniform and consistent code enforcement, preserving neighborhoods and safeguarding public safety.

Property Maintenance & Development Services is the primary agency for maintaining the appearance and condition of neighborhoods and business districts. Property Maintenance & Development Services is also an advocate for Dearborn's residents by aiding property owners when interacting with building contractors and providing timely and accurate information.

Property Maintenance & Development Services is concerned with the construction, maintenance, alteration and repair of all buildings and other structures located on private property, as well as having a role in the city's public projects.

Property Maintenance & Development Services also makes occupancy and re-occupancy inspections for all residential properties to ensure safety and compliance of all appropriate codes and ordinances and issues Certificates of Occupancy when all requirements have been met.

This department is also responsible for the appearance of our neighborhoods. Routine inspections are made in both commercial districts and residential neighborhoods to manage nuisances, address complaints and enforce ordinance compliance.

Licenses are approved for issuance by this department for stationary engineers, boiler operators and refrigeration operators after suitable evidence of ability and reliability has been submitted and after written and oral examinations have been conducted.
