We strongly encourage that you talk with your neighbor about your concern before contacting the Code Compliance Division. In most cases, contacting the property owner and notifying them of the nuisance will resolve the problem. Let the property owner know how this problem is directly affecting the neighborhood. Explain your point of view and see if a compromise can be reached. Most property owners will listen and respond to your concerns; they too have a vested interest in the appearance of the neighborhood.If you find that your attempts to resolve the nuisance have failed, please call the Code Compliance Division at 707-678-7070. Although voluntary compliance is the objective, involuntary abatement actions will be taken if necessary.

Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&Rs) are generally recorded by a developer upon construction of a sub division and homebuyers may be required to agree in writing to the CC&Rs upon purchasing the home. The City is not party to the agreement and does not enforce CC&Rs. Complaints involving violations of the CC&Rs should be addressed to the respective Home Owner’s Association.
Contact the Compliance Division prior to the re-inspection date and they may provide you additional time to make the corrections provided you have made some progress towards compliance and the violation is not an immediate health and safety hazard.
You can always contact the Compliance Division to find out the status of your complaint. Code Compliance strives for voluntary compliance from the responsible party; this may include extensions in time to gain compliance. All legal processes must be followed and exhausted prior to any direct abatement action taken by the City.
