Existing Structure Exterior Property Enforcement Process

Process for Existing Structure Exterior Property Enforcement

  • Once we receive a complaint/concern, the inspector will inspect the property generally within two (2) business days.
  • If the property is found to be in violation, the inspector will take photos of the violation(s) and send a Notice of Violation letter to the owner of record giving them a minimum of ten (10) days to correct the violation.
  • The inspector will re-inspect the property periodically. 
  • If the property remains in violation, an enforcement action is taken by the Building Commission. 
  • Enforcement actions typically include fines and public hearings ordering the correction or demolition of the property.
