Code Enforcement Presentation Available
Written by NSN Coordinator   

As you may be aware, the City of Tucson's Code Enforcement Section  is responsible for enforcing property maintenance codes throughout Tucson.  These are the codes that ensure property owners maintain their properties, which then helps protect the health, welfare and safety of our citizens and assist with preserving the property values of our neighborhoods.   The codes we enforce include the Neighborhood Preservation Ordinance, illegal signs as determined by the Sign code, and zoning enforcement as outlined in the Land Use Code.  The main code issues that we address includes overgrown weeds, trash/debris, excessive storage, work without permits, dead vegetation, junk motor vehicles, minimum housing standards, substandard and unsanitary housing conditions, vacant and neglected buildings, zoning violations, property use violations plus illegal temporary signs and signs placed illegally in the public right-of-way. 

In 2010, we are asking the presidents of the Neighborhood Associations to consider having a member of our staff present an overview of what Code Enforcement is responsible for at one of your meetings.  We believe that many NA are unaware of our responsibilities and how we can assist in ensuring the maintenance of the properties in their neighborhoods.  If you are interested in having us present, please contact me via email with some dates including time and place and we can then try to coordinate this presentation.  We believe that we do have a purpose in making Tucson a better community to live in and we want to ensure that your neighborhood is aware of how we can help.  I look forward to hearing from you.
