Code Violation & Complaints
Code Enforcement actions are governed by Chapter 15 of the Maricopa
County Zoning Ordinance as enabled under Title 11 of the Arizona Revised Statutes. The goal of the Code Enforcement Division is to gain
voluntary compliance with codes and regulations from property owners.
Typical code enforcement violations include; building without a permit, dilapidated structures, junk, trash and debris, drainage issues,
abandoned vehicles, and overgrown dried weeds.
Filing a complaint is a formal method of notifying the Code Enforcement Division of possible building code and/or zoning violations on a
specific property. Complaints must be in writing or online and all information about you remains confidential until and unless the violation
case proceeds to court.
