Preserving Our Community
Code Enforcement serves our community with compassion to:
Code Enforcement receives requests to enforce ordinances adopted to address blight, nuisances, and health and safety issues. We recognize every resident plays an important role in our community and deserves a safe place to work and live. While attempting to balance the needs of all of our residents, we strive to deliver our services in a timely fashion, professionally, and with a good attitude.
City Council adopted the San Buenaventura Property Maintenance Code on October 7, 2019. This municipal code is used to ensure public health, safety and welfare of city residents and community members. Existing structures that do not comply with these provisions shall be altered or repaired to provide a minimum level of health and safety as required.
