Code Compliance's Mission

It is the mission of the Code Compliance Program to work in partnership with the people of Nevada County to promote and maintain a healthy, safe and desirable living and working environment. Code Compliance helps maintain or improve the quality of the community by administering a fair and unbiased enforcement program to correct violations of codes and ordinances enacted by the Board of Supervisors in regards to property, buildings, and structures.

The purpose of the Nevada County Code Compliance Program is to create a single, one-stop, consolidated code compliance/code enforcement program. The Code Compliance Division is authorized to enforce all County Codes, regulations and laws that are delegated to departments within the CDA. The goal is to coordinate compliance and when necessary enforcement actions consistent with the policies and procedures administered by each specific department given their professional training and legal delegated authority.
