Proactive Approach to Code Enforcement Promotes Healthy, Safe Community

Common Code Violations

HUDSON, OH (August 21, 2019) – At the August 20 Council Meeting, City Manager Jane Howington provided an update on the City’s code enforcement efforts. Code inspectors respond to complaints and conduct periodic inspections of existing residential and commercial properties. Code enforcement ensures community standards are maintained and protects the investment residents make in their homes.

In general, there are two enforcement types: zoning and property maintenance. Zoning violations involve having active zoning certificates when making changes to one’s property, such as fences, signage, project completion, and design compliance. 

Property maintenance requires that homeowners maintain their properties according to the Code. The most common complaints the City receives about property maintenance are RVs and unregistered vehicles parked on a property, tall grass, garbage and litter, signs in the right of way, large brush piles, home businesses with commercial vehicles on the property or in the street, and property disrepair.

When the City receives a complaint or sees a violation, the property is inspected and the owner is notified through personal contact, door hangers, and/or a courtesy letter explaining the violation and asking them to bring the issue into compliance. Many times, the homeowner is not aware it is a code violation, and the first courtesy contact is all that is needed to have the violation corrected.  If the violation is not corrected, the next step is to send a formal warning, with a specific time frame in which the homeowner should correct the violation. If it is still not brought into compliance, a citation is issued which could result in fines.
