Mission Statement

Our mission is to protect the health, safety and welfare of the City residents by mitigating physical signs of urban blight and social disorder through the enforcement of the City Code of Colorado Springs.


The Code Enforcement Unit is responsible for the inspection of publicly and privately owned residential buildings to assure that they meet the Minimum Housing Standards for the City of Colorado Springs and to ensure safe and sanitary living conditions for all residents within the city limits.

Code Enforcement also ensures compliance of fourteen (14) additional codes:

Public Health and Sanitation - Noise Enforcement - Unlicensed/Inoperable Vehicles - Oversize vehicle parking and storage in residential zones - Recreational vehicle parking and storage in residential zones - Junk - Light Intrusion - Weeds - Litter - Graffiti - Maintenance of adjacent rights of way - Temporary Signs - Signs on public property or right of ways - Inspection and licensing of garbage/trash removal trucks

The City of Colorado Springs encourages neighbors to become community-minded and to join together in providing safe, attractive neighborhoods and sanitary living conditions for all citizens. Walk your neighborhood and meet your neighbors! Working together is the most effective program. The City invites residents to cooperate with one another in a "neighbor to neighbor" manner to resolve minor problems before contacting the Code Enforcement Unit (444-7891) for assistance.

Code Enforcement has to allow due process to occur when requiring abatement of violations. Upon verification that a violation exists, an officer may give a verbal warning to the occupant; issue a written notice and hang it on the door; or, send a letter of notification; all with a specific compliance date. Upon re-inspection, if the violation still exists, a notice and order is sent to the last known property owner; in addition, you may see a notice posted on the property, and again a compliance date is given. Continued non-compliance may result in judicial remedies, contractor abatement and/or repeat offender fees.
