The Neighborhood Support Division serves the city of Aurora through the administration and enforcement of the Aurora Municipal Code of Ordinances in addition to the International Codes adopted for Fire, Zoning, Building, Mechanical, Plumbing and Electrical requirements. Neighborhood Support Staff helps to promote self-reliance towards a positive physical image of the city and works hard to find ways to get residents to work together so everyone can be a part of the solution.

The purpose of Code Enforcement is to enhance the community and uphold property values by enforcing minimum maintenance requirements of residential and business property. Certified Code Enforcement Officers respond to complaints and patrol their assigned areas proactively to identify code violations. (View a map of the assigned areas.) When a violation is found, property owners and/or occupants are then given a specified time to correct the violation. Failure to comply with a Notice of Violation may result in property abatement and/or receiving a summons to appear in court.

 
 
 

Code Enforcement Priorities

Code Enforcement prioritizes its response to complaints to try to meet the needs of the community with available resources. Code Enforcement strives to respond to address private property violations with an initial inspection within 48 hours from receiving the case request. Cases that pose imminent health and safety hazards or constitute significant code violations are given the highest priority, since they have the highest potential result in significant harm to the community. For more details on how cases are prioritized, refer to this chart.
