We work in partnership with the people of San José to promote and maintain a safe, desirable living and working environment. This work happens in these three ways:

  • We administer a fair, unbiased enforcement program to correct violations of municipal codes and land use requirements.
  • We work with residents, neighborhood associations, public service agencies, and other City of San José departments to:
    • Empower community self-help programs.
    • Develop public outreach programs.
    • Establish community priorities for the enforcement program.
  • We initiate special programs targeted toward specific problems in our community.
