On June 1, 2020, Governor Whitmer rescinded Executed Order 2020-96 and issued Executive Order 2020-110, limiting in-person work to reduce the spread of Covid-19. As a result, all meetings of the Detroit Building Authority Board of Commissioners will be held by electronic means until certain restrictions on in-person gatherings have been lifted by the Governor.

All meetings will be held consistent with Executive Order  2020-75  and will provide a  means for the community to participate. Meetings will be posted in accordance with the Open Meetings Act, as modified by Executive Order 2020-75.
