Code Enforcement

Maintaining Beautiful Port Orange

The City of Port Orange and its residents are interested in keeping our city clean, safe, and esthetically pleasing. Code Enforcement is both reactive and proactive. Providing consistency throughout the city. We look forward to working with you to keep the City of Port Orange beautiful and we appreciate your assistance.

Residential and Commercial Code Enforcement

Code Enforcement is divided up into two sections - Residential Code Enforcement and Commercial Code Enforcement.

Residential Code Enforcement ensures that all residential property owners within the city comply with the city's regulations. Residential Code Enforcement cannot enforce HOA/COA rules and regulations.

Commercial Code Enforcement administers the Commercial Property Maintenance Program (CPMP). The goal of the CPMP is to ensure that required property improvements (i.e. landscaping, irrigation, lighting, parking, and signage) are properly maintained. 

Common Complaints

Most of the complaints we receive are regarding high weeds and grass, parking in the front yard, outside storage, and junk vehicles.

As individuals, we can maintain our properties by keeping them neat, free from debris, outside storage, removing all junk vehicles in a timely matter and keeping our lawns mowed.

In addition, maintaining your property by keeping it painted and in good repair will ensure that we will all have neighborhoods we can be proud of.

Complainants must provide their names and addresses in order for code enforcement officers to conduct such investigations. However, if you believe that an alleged violation poses an imminent threat to public health, safety, or welfare or imminent destruction of habitat or sensitive resources, you may report such a violation anonymously by calling (386)506-5604.
