Zoning Violations

Any person who is aggrieved by an alleged violation may request in writing that the Department of Planning and Zoning issue a Violation Notice.  Requests must be made in writing using the Zoning Complaint Form.  

Once a written request is filed an investigation into the alleged violation begins. If the complainant's name and address were included with the request the Department shall notify the complainant, in writing, if it determines the alleged violation exists and a violation notice is issued. Further updates are provided if a citation hearing is scheduled before the Hearing Authority. No updates or notices are provided on open enforcement cases except to the written complainant, provided they are not anonymous.
