Community Code Compliance

We promote compliance with community standards through enforcement of applicable zoning codes and regulations in the Broward County Code of Ordinances. We enforce those standards by addressing property maintenance problems that can negatively impact a neighborhood or community, including the following:

  • Overgrown grass and noxious vegetation 
  • Improperly stored inoperable or derelict vehicles and vessels (boats)
  • Parking or storage of prohibited commercial vehicles in residential neighborhoods
  • Unauthorized commercial activities occurring within residential neighborhoods
  • Open-air storage of prohibited items
  • Discolored building exteriors and graffiti
  • Illegal advertising signs
  • Landscaping neglect
  • Buildings showing visible signs of neglect and disrepair
  • Abandoned property
  • Improper storage of garbage, recycling carts, and dumpsters
  • Construction work without zoning approval and permits
  • Minimum housing code standards

We also work to accomplish neighborhood revitalization and the quality of life through many programs, including:

  • Education and citizen outreach
  • Community leadership surveys
  • Proactive code compliance patrol
  • Land clearance abatement
  • Junk property abatement
  • Free paint distribution assistance
  • Partnering with neighborhood civic associations
  • Periodic code enforcement neighborhood sweeps
  • Abandoned and vacant real property registration and maintenance
