Community Development Department
Welcome to the Community Development Enforcement Page
The Code Compliance division of Community Development Department enforces building, land use, and portions of the litter codes within the City and Borough of Juneau, arising from a variety of referrals or complaints. These include, but are not limited to; community submissions, research and issues noted in the course of CDD Code Compliance investigations.
When an inspector is assigned a complaint, he/she conducts a site visit to verify violation(s) exists. If violation(s) are discovered, the property owner is informed of the violation(s) and the appropriate action needed to abate the violation(s).
Community Development enforcement does not address "housekeeping" (poorly maintained yard) or "sloppy neighbor" (visually unattractive yard) issues. Nor do we address public roadway violations, private property disputes, location of fence disputes or the issuance of domestic pet licenses
What is a Community Development Enforcement Violation?
How do I file a Complaint?
What Happens When a Complaint is Filed?
Step 1 - Initial complaint is received that clearly describes the nature and location of alleged violation(s).
Step 2 - The complaint is given to the appropriate inspector.
Step 3 - The inspector conducts a site inspection and may need to research Community Development files prior to site visit. If a violation is found, the inspector will contact the property owner and make them aware of the violation. A Notice of Violation or Building Permt Reminder is issued. If the owner responds, methods for compliance are discussed and agreed upon.
Step 4 - If the owner does not respond to the notice, a second site inspection is conducted, another notice is sent and/or a citation issued.
Step 5 - If the owner still does not respond, the inspector will make another site visit and may issue a second.
Step 6 - If the owner does not respond to the second citation, the inspector will then perform another site visit and may issue a third citation which will require a mandatory court appearance.
What's Taking so Long?
Please be aware that although you may have reported a violation, there are a number of reasons why nothing seems to be happening:
Please be patient as we are working hard to resolve all cases.
