The Marin County Community Development Agency has established a code enforcement program to ensure compliance with the County's laws and regulations for land use, zoning, building, housing, and environmental health. The Community Development Agency places a high priority on code enforcement as a means of accomplishing adopted community goals, such as maintaining the quality of neighborhoods, avoiding nuisances, and protecting the environment. The code enforcement program is not intended to be selective or discriminatory against any one individual, group, area, or business. Alleged code violations are investigated by County staff as they are reported or discovered, and steps are taken to resolve confirmed violations prior to initiation of abatement procedures. The Community Development Agency has not been notified of all code violations that currently exist in the County.
In response to the COVID-19 emergency and the Marin County Health Officer’s Shelter-In-Place Order, the Development Services Center is CLOSED. We have limited ability to investigate complaints. At this time, our priority is to protect public health and safety, focusing our resources on complaints about development activity that are significant threats to public safety.
The Community Development Agency does not interpret or enforce the Marin County Health Officer’s Shelter in Place Order. The order requests that the Sheriff’s Office and all Police Departments in Marin County ensure compliance with and enforce the order.
