Code Compliance Division
Overview
The Code Compliance Division is responsible for addressing nuisance and property standard violations to provide a safe and healthy environment for the community. These violations include high weeds and grass, trash and debris, illegal dumping and illegal home occupations. The main goal of this enforcement is to resolve violations to reduce neighborhood deterioration and sustain property values. Through the efforts of our code compliance officers, the City of Allen hopes to gain willing compliance, encourage citizen participation and stimulate cooperation towards maintaining their property.
