One of the goals of Riverside’s Code Enforcement Division is to bring to the attention of property owners any existing code violations. Through voluntary compliance, conditions which create code violations can be eliminated or reduced. Working together with the community, the program will succeed in making the City of Riverside an even better place to live, work and play!
Code Enforcement actively addresses vacant, neglected and foreclosed homes through a comprehensive enforcement program aimed at eliminating the blight associated with these properties and working with property owners to have properties rehabilitated and re-occupied.
