Code Compliance Corner


Code Compliance seeks compliance with city ordinances pertaining to maintenance, sanitation, rehabilitation, conservation and safety of existing residential and commercial properties, such as:  graffiti, high weeds and grass, junked and nuisance vehicles on the property, cars parked in yards, etc. 

The City of Arlington codes are intended to benefit everyone while making our neighborhoods a better place to live, work, and play. Compliance with these standards can reduse vandalism, deter cirme, maintain property valuse, and prevent deterioration of your neighborhood.
