Public Nuisance Issues
|The Community Preservation Division enforces the City’s Municipal and Zoning Codes addressing Property Maintenance issues related to residential and commercial properties. The purpose of these codes is to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the citizens of Glendora and to maintain the quality of life set by the standards desired by the community.
The Community Preservation Division would like to remind its citizens to please support your community by being a good neighbor and adhering to City regulations which can prevent the deterioration of our neighborhoods from public nuisance conditions such as those listed below. Daily inspections are conducted by the code enforcement officers seeking to correct public nuisance conditions reported within the community.
Owning, renting or leasing a home is a great responsibility. Glendora standards require that the property be maintained with well irrigated lawns, weed free, shrubs and trees should be trimmed up from the ground and away from neighboring properties. The property should be checked for needed repairs to maintain the quality of the community such as needed exterior painting, new fencing, the repair of any broken windows, etc.
Abandoned or Unoccupied Homes
Dwellings that are unoccupied must be maintained and secured from trespassers or intruders. It is the responsibility of the current property owner to check the property for any weeds, trash, discarded items, or vandalism. Working closely with the Glendora Police Department and Code Enforcement can help prevent targeted home such as these from future vandalism and illegal activity.
