Code violations are primarily addressed on a complaint basis. However, there are proactive enforcement measures and programs including the proactive sign enforcement program and the volunteer sign removal program for illegal portable signs in the right of way. Additional proactive programs include landfill inspections and monitoring of electronic messaging signs for compliance with conditions. Complaints and concerns from the public related to potential zoning violations are investigated by zoning staff. Code enforcement issues include, but are not limited to:

  • Use of property not permitted within the district
  • Overcrowding
  • Keeping too many dogs or cats in a residential district
  • Keeping stock farm animals in a residential district
  • Home occupations exceeding restrictions
  • Fences that are too tall
  • Signage
  • Commercial vehicle parking on residential lots
  • Recreational equipment not stored in the rear yard or connected to utilities

Zoning inspectors will work to obtain voluntary compliance and, if necessary, initiates court action to obtain compliance.
