Is It A Code Violation?
The Current Planning Code Compliance Division relies heavily on the public to observe, recognize and report to the proper authority any Code Violations that are occurring in their neighborhood. This reliance places a lot of responsibility with the public to recognize when a use within a property is, or is not a Code Violation handled by the Current Planning Division. To aid with the identification of code violations Current Planning has collected a sample of commonly reported activities, grouped them within categories, provided information on whether or not the activity is a code violation, and what steps can be taken to correct the violation.
If the Violation you wish to report is not handled by Current Planning, or you are unable to find the Violation you are observing within one of the categories, then we recommend searching the Violation Topics Page which provides a list of all the departments with the County who are charged with the enforcement of code standards, and what the code standards are that they enforce.
