The City of Meadows Place is committed to improving the quality of life in our community. Code Enforcement works with property owners and occupants to maintain the status of our city as a clean, livable and a safe place by routinely inspecting the city, responding to complaints, and notifying residents of code violations. Daily activities include removal of illegal signs, identifying non-permitted work, and enforcement of the City Codes of Ordinances including zoning ordinances.

Our Code Enforcement Flow Chart explains how violations are handled here in the City of Meadows Place.

(Please note that it is NOT required that we issue a warning notice before issuing a citation).

It is very easy to be taken over by the speed in which your life is moving by, and by focusing yourself on completing your laundry list of tasks that you may not notice someone else who is in need. Please remember that we are a COMMUNITY. We have residents of every age and walk of life. A simple task of trimming back a tree branch 10 feet above the sidewalk or putting away a trash can from the curb to behind a fence may not be a problem for most people, but it may be a huge obstacle for another. Please be mindful of your neighbor’s needs and help if you are able. You can also contact City Hall if you are not able to assist them and we will try to find them assistance when possible.
“Code compliance is an intricate and valuable function for our city. Compliance with codes is essential to the protection of public safety, preserving property values, preventing crime, and avoiding deterioration of our community.”

We all want to show pride in our COMMUNITY and together WE can build the values of our homes and properties. We all would like to be considered “good” neighbors and have the same expectations of the family living next door. It is difficult to know what expectations your neighbors have of you, and you also may not know what expectations the City has, so the City has put together a list of 10 common issues that some of you may not be familiar with. Some of the top ten listed below may be paraphrased and may be looked up in their entirety by clicking the colored # links on each of the top ten.

Attention Renters and Landlords:

The City of Meadows Place requires that homeowners wishing to rent/lease their property to another individual, must apply for and obtain a yearly Residential Rental Property License Application found HERE.

The owner of the home is also required to obtain an inspection prior to the home being occupied. The form for that process can be found here: Rental Occupancy Inspection Form found here.

If you are a tenant, and your home is not registered or inspected, you should contact your landlord immediately to have him/her complete the application and submit it to the Permits Department (This will prevent fines & court appearances for non-compliance).
