Zoning Issues

Zoning helps city government regulate congestion on streets, prevent overcrowding, maintain property values and ensure the health, safety and general welfare of residents.

illegal Fence

Zoning violations — like this illegal fence addition — are considered harmless by some, but they can have determental effects on property value and safety.

Code Compliance routinely investigates violations, which often include: 

  • automobile repair shops, wrecking yards and daycares operated in residential zoning
  • outside storage
  • encroachment of a right of way
  • unpermitted garage sales
  • fence regulations.

Violators are issued a written notice directing that the violation be corrected within ten days.  Illegal uses of zoned areas can result in a fine of up to $2,000 for each offense.
