Neighborhood Preservation Program
Contract Code Enforcement
Since 2010, APP has supported the County of Orange with contract code enforcement officers. Between two and three contract code enforcement officers manage Neighborhood Preservation Program cases originating in unincorporated portions of the county. APP’s services include reviewing, processing and closing code enforcement cases involving alleged violations of codes governing zoning, building, grading, nuisances and property maintenance. APP personnel review case files, inspect properties and file notices and complaints against violators. They also document and prepare violation cases for the district attorney and county counsel and testify in court. APP’s interim code enforcement staff also support the county’s graffiti enforcement and removal program and have advised the county on identifying funding to sustain the Neighborhood Preservation Program.
