Code Enforcement Officer Tips

A Quality Community Begins With You

Well-maintained homes are essential components of a healthy community. Preserving our housing stock, maintaining property values, and ensuring our properties are healthy and safe benefits not only individual property owners and tenants, but also the community at large.

Each year the City receives hundreds of calls from its citizens with property maintenance concerns. In response to these inquiries, the Code Enforcement Division has prepared this checklist (PDF) as a guide for determining property maintenance code compliance.

Temporary Signage and Outdoor Promotion

The City Council adopted new standards to increase the amount of time temporary signage can be displayed and the types of temporary signage allowed at Lake Forest businesses.
