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.
