Code Enforcement

Meetings with Code Enforcement are appointment only. No same day appointments are available. Schedule a visit with us and we'll be happy to help.

Our role is to ensure the health, safety, and welfare of North Port residents by maintaining community standards. Code Enforcement Inspectors are proactive and will inform property owners of a violation of any North Port City Code, Unified Land Development Code, or Florida Building Code. Violations of codes may be presented to the Code Enforcement Hearing where a Hearing Officer will listen and make a decision on alleged violations.

Notice: Anonymous code complaint cannot be taken per FL Statue 162.06 (b). A person who reports a potential violation of a code or an ordinance must provide his or her name and address to the respective local government before an enforcement proceeding may occur.
