Code Enforcement

The Code Enforcement Division of the Department of Planning and Development partners with home and business owners alike to achieve voluntary compliance as it relates to life health safety; land use; zoning; minimum property/building standards on residential/commercial zoned properties; and beautification.

Code Enforcement is committed to safeguarding public health, improving community appearance, and protecting the integrity of neighborhoods.
