The beauty, peacefulness and safety of our neighborhoods make Monterey one of the most desirable places to live in the country. Code Compliance plays an important role in maintaining the quality of our neighborhoods.
Code Compliance deals with a range of neighborhood issues, from abandoned vehicles parked in yards or driveways to illegal conversions of garages into living spaces and unsanitary buildup of trash and debris on private property.
The first “tool” in enforcing codes in Monterey is public education. When we explain that a law is being broken, most problems are resolved quickly. Actual code compliance (usually by way of issuing citations) is normally used only when we don’t gain voluntary cooperation. We stay in contact with community groups to understand local concerns, and we welcome all questions regarding your neighborhood issues.
