It is the mission of the Code Enforcement Division of the Department of Planning, Building, and Code Enforcement to work in partnership with the people of San José to promote and maintain a safe and desirable living and working environment. We help maintain or improve the quality of your community in three ways:
  • We administer a fair and unbiased enforcement program to correct violations of municipal codes and land use requirements.
  • We work with residents, neighborhood association, public service agencies, and other City of San José departments to:
    • Empower community self-help programs.
    • Develop public outreach programs.
    • Establish community priorities for the enforcement program.
  • We initiate special programs targeted toward specific problems in San José communities.
