Code Enforcement

Code Enforcement | Header Image

The Code Enforcement Division's primary mission is to protect the health and wellbeing of Takoma Park residents through the preservation of its residential and commercial infrastructure. Responsibilities include the inspection and licensing of residential rental structures, community-wide enforcement of the Property Maintenance Code and other nuisance ordinances, the investigation of nuisance complaints, and referrals to appropriate county and state agencies in situations where local codes do not apply.

Enforcement efforts are coordinated to the greatest extent possible with other City departments and County and State officials. We also work closely with the community, maintaining positive relationships with Takoma Park business associations, neighborhood groups, property owners and residents.

To be effective and efficient, Code Enforcement staff also need the cooperation of residents and businesses. To learn more, explore the links on the left or contact the Code Enforcement Division:
