Neighborhood Code Compliance
The City of Sacramento Neighborhood Code Compliance works in partnership with the citizens of Sacramento to promote and maintain a safe and desirable living and working environment. Staff handles community and neighborhood code issues, including illegal dumping, abandoned or inoperable vehicles, graffiti, weed-abatement, and zoning violations.
Neighborhood code compliance improves the quality of life in Sacramento's neighborhoods through awareness, education and enforcement, including:
- Abandoned vehicles – considered one of the top code compliance complaints in neighborhoods
- Anti-Graffiti – aimed to wipe out graffiti and clean up crime
- Junk and Debris – removes illegal dumped debris, accumulated trash and junk, abandoned or inoperable vehicles on private properties, etc.
- Weed abatement – reduces the fire danger associated with neglected lots.
- Housing and Dangerous Buildings – enforces city and state mandated codes on residential and commercial structures that are dangerous, vacant, substandard or blighted.
- Vacant Buildings - properties that are vacant and neglected can be cited as a public nuisance after 30 days.
