Code Enforcement

The Code Enforcement Division is dedicated to working in partnership with residents, tenants, landlords and business owners to promote and maintain a safe and desirable living and working environment and is responsible for ensuring that City Codes are implemented on private property in Santa Rosa to address general health, life, fire and safety issues facing residents.

By bringing code violations to the property owner’s attention, homes and businesses are properly maintained, and the appearance and safety of the community is improved. By working together with the community, Code Enforcement helps reduce crime, protects the health and well-being of our residents, helps maintain property values, and preserves and enhances our community for future generations.
