Buildings & Inspections' Property Maintenance Division is charged with eliminating blight and building safety hazards and promotes building repair and renovation through education and enforcement to protect the public health, safety and quality of life.
Property Maintenance Code Enforcement requests include tenant complaints about poor housing conditions and neighbor complaints of blight on commercial and residential buildings and premises.
Zoning complaints relate to illegal land use issues, including (but not limited to) front yard parking on grass, contractor's yards in residential districts and illegal commercial uses in residential districts. For more information on Zoning Code, view the City of Cincinnati Zoning Code (Section 1400-1451 of the Cincinnati Municipal Code).
Concentrated Code Enforcement is a house-to-house inspection in code enforcement areas. All buildings in a neighborhood focus area are inspected on the exterior for property maintenance issues. It is a systematic and proactive approach to addressing code violations and is typically performed as part of the Neighborhood Enhancement Program.
