Code Enforcement

The Code Enforcement Division of the City of Community Development Department is there to enforce the Pleasanton Municipal Code as it applies to property maintenance, property nuisances and other problems in residential and commercial zoning districts.

The Code Enforcement Division works closely with all City departments in order to resolve health, safety, and public nuisance problems that adversely affect the quality of life of the citizen's of Pleasanton. The Unit focuses on public education as the best way to gain voluntary compliance with the Pleasanton Municipal Code and steers abatement measures through coordinated and cooperative measures, rather than through disjointed singular efforts. Over 90 percent of all reported problems are resolved on the initial contact by Code Enforcement Officers. In rare circumstances, administrative penalties are assessed to those who fail to comply with the municipal code.

There is a long list of problems handled by the Code Enforcement Division including:

  • Visible garbage and trash

  • Junk and other debris visible from a public street
  • Vehicles parked on lawns or dirt
  • Illegal auto repairs/dismantling
