Code Enforcement

Neighborhood Services handles enforcement of the Municipal Code that relates to health, safety, property maintenance, and public nuisances within the city.
Our focus is to develop solutions that provide a positive and lasting effect to promote the public's confidence in the vitality of our city and to make Northglenn place where residents, visitors and businesses will want to invest time, effort and resources.

Why do cities have code enforcement?
Safety is the biggest driver of neighborhood municipal nuisance codes – dead trees, fire hazards, fences in need of repair and other maintenance issues cause health and safety risks. Municipalities pass nuisance codes to help mitigate these risks and create standards. When someone chooses to live in that municipality, they are obligated to follow the codes. Neighborhood Services routinely monitors all neighborhoods, especially for seasonal issues. Property values are affected by appearance, and in our community residents have voiced the need for enforcement. 

Residents have expressed the need for robust code enforcement. Our Neighborhood Services team responds to complaints and proactively patrols the city on a daily basis to address code violations. 97% of residents respond to code enforcement notices voluntarily the first time.
