Code Enforcement

Code Enforcement


Riverside Code EnforcementThe Code Enforcement Division is part of the Community Development Department with the City of Riverside. Code Enforcement receives requests for service each year for property maintenance and health and safety concerns. The Code Enforcement Division has a comprehensive program which protects a property owner's investment, promotes public health and welfare, and enhances the quality of life in our neighborhoods.

One of the goals of Riverside’s Code Enforcement Division is to bring to the attention of property owners any existing code violations. Through voluntary compliance, conditions which create code violations can be eliminated or reduced. Working together with the community, the program will succeed in making the City of Riverside an even better place to live, work and play!
