Code Enforcement

Duties & Responsibilities
Community Planning and Development is responsible for the Township’s Code Enforcement functions. This includes making sure that the Township Zoning Ordinances and other developmental codes including the Code of Ordinances are observed by all property owners in the Township.

The Code Enforcement Staff strives to reduce blight and remove all unsafe conditions throughout the Township. We have a responsibility to protect the health and safety of the individual citizens as well as the public generally. It is our goal to make the Township a cleaner and healthier community. With cooperation and assistance, we can make our neighborhoods more desirable places to live and assure all of us a better community.

Efforts are also underway to increase citizen awareness of the Township’s codes and more involvement in their enforcement. The beauty and charm of our neighborhoods are among Waterford Township’s most precious assets. The Code Enforcement staff is committed to providing information, assistance and meeting the needs of the citizens we serve.
