Core Business Process: Code Compliance
In support of the Council's Transforming Neighborhoods strategic priority, the mission of the Code Compliance Department is to promote and encourage compliance with nuisance, zoning and building codes for resilient neighborhoods through public contact and education, building cooperative partnerships throughout the community, and enforcing laws and ordinances in an equitable and impartial manner.
- Identify properties with code violations and work toward voluntary compliance through education and cooperation.
- Promotion of safe and attractive neighborhoods is accomplished through utilization of Team Up to Clean Up campaign.
Team up To Clean Up
Our Team Up to Clean Up Campaign has resulted in an average of +90% voluntary compliance, nearly double the rate of traditional code compliance enforcement model. Citizens are showing the initiative in taking pride in their neighborhood and cleaning their properties. By creating partnerships not just between the City and its residents, but also between the neighbors themselves, Code Compliance is establishing a model which empowers residents to take pride in their neighborhood and provide a method to sustain compliance within their community.
