Code Enforcement

Commercial/Residental Code Enforcement Program

Project Goal:

To provide residential and commercial code enforcement activities, including code inspections and follow-up. 

2011 Achievements:

819 residential and 74 commercial properties were surveyed;
22 properties were tracked for foreclosure and referred to foreclosure prevention programs;
16 received foreclosure assistance, 6 homes refinanced.

Staff was instrumental in completing parcel by parcel surveys and inspections for the Ward 2 Neighborhood Stabilization Initiative for those areas in the Mt. Pleasant Community. Home Repair workshops were held to address repair needs, energy saving and simple do-it-yourself techniques, as well as to assist with Housing Court issues. Commercial workshops with partnering community development corporations provided business owners with funding opportunities and other resources to improve profits.
