Welcome to the OC Community Development Neighborhood Preservation / Code Enforcement Services Home Page
The mission of the Neighborhood Preservation Unit is to protect the health, safety, and welfare of residents in Orange County’s unincorporated communities through community involvement, education, and regulation. Through consistent code enforcement efforts in promoting and maintaining compliance with the County’s Codified Ordinances, quality of life and public safety are both preserved and enhanced, and the lives of our community members are safeguarded.
The Neighborhood Preservation Unit staff regularly coordinates with Orange County Waste & Recycling to host Community Clean Up events. These very popular community service events provide the opportunity for residents to dispose of household & yard waste free of charge, with volunteers from the County work side-by-side with residents to assist with disposal. Recent events include:
• El Modena, August 2011
• Stanton, January 28, 2012
• Midway City, March 3, 2012
• West Anaheim, June 2, 2012
• Future events to be announced
Neighborhood Preservation staff also participates in local community meetings in an effort to both educate and work with residents so that they may better understand the County’s Codified Ordinances and maintain a community free of violations that could result in public health and safety issues and/or diminished property values.
Efforts to further develop outreach programs designed to assist residents in preserving their communities are always ongoing.
The Neighborhood Preservation Unit investigates complaints to determine if a violation of the Orange County Codified Ordinances exists. Common violations include:
