Property Maintenance

In our Community Standards Division, we are responsible for ensuring our community stay beautiful by enforcing property maintenance codes. As a resident, you are responsible for making sure you comply with these codes. 

Common residential code violations

  • Trash and recycling container storage: You must store all trash, recycling and yard waste behind the building line or inside your garage. If you keep it outside, you must store it in a container with a lid.

  • Nuisances: You may not keep items considered a nuisance. This includes appliances, excessive trash or waste, items not manufactured for outdoor use, or anything that causes a foul or unhealthy odor.

  • Pools: Pools must be kept in a clean, sanitary condition and in good repair or covered with a tight-fitting cover.
