Code enforcement is a powerful and often overlooked system capable of not only fixing issues on problem properties, but also strengthening neighborhoods. Many local governments dealing with a lot of vacant, abandoned, and deteriorated properties are finding traditional code enforcement—focused on issuing citations and collecting fines—isn't working. A more strategic approach focused on compliance could change that.
This webinar will unveil a new resource, Reevaluating Code Enforcement: A New Approach to Addressing Problem Properties, in which Community Progress details steps local governments can take towards a more equitable, efficient, and effective code enforcement system. It will also highlight steps one major city—Cincinnati—has taken toward adopting this approach. Community Progress will also share the details of a new scholarship for technical assistance services we are launching to help local governments reimagine their code enforcement processes.
