Code Enforcement

Mission Statement

The City of Coronado Code Enforcement program helps maintain the quality of life for the residents of Coronado. To accomplish this, the Code Enforcement Officer assists property owners regarding code violations and educates the public regarding the requirements of the Municipal Code. Pursuant to Coronado City Council policy, staff will only respond to written complaints. To enforce the Code, the Code Enforcement Officer issues Notices of Violations to obtain compliance, in accordance with the Municipal Code. The program relies on voluntary non-judicial compliance, emphasizing public awareness of the City of Coronado regulatory provisions.
