- Neglected landscaping
- Junk motor vehicles on private property
- Dangerous buildings
- Graffiti on private and commercial property
- Illegal dumping
- Open and vacant property
- Overgrown vacant lots
Other City Partnerships
The Code Enforcement team is part of the Problem Oriented Policing Unit and also works closely with the Planning Division, Building and Safety Division, and General Services Department, to keep the city beautiful and safe. You can help by becoming familiar with the most common violations and reporting them by reading about the violation reporting process.
