Code Compliance Corner


The Dangerous and Substandard (DSS) Team is working to make Arlington a more thriving community by identifying substandard structures that pose a risk to public safety, having them brought into compliance, or removed.
The example to the right is of a dilapidated swimming pool pushing up out of the ground. Not only could someone be injured if they stumbled upon this pool, but it could also harbor stagnant water, and be a haven for mosquito breeding activity. 

If you see a possible code violation you may report it at, or by calling 817-459-6777
Become a Code Ranger volunteer and help improve your neighborhood. Learn more.
