Code Enforcement/Quality of Life

The condition of buildings, lots and other real property in Rochester, whether vacant or occupied, plays a vital role in the quality of life enjoyed by the city's residents, merchants and visitors. Enforcement of the municipal property and zoning codes ensures that this property meets or exceeds required standards. This protects the health, safety and welfare of those who live, work and visit the city. It also conserves the value of the property and the property around it.

**ATTENTION CUSTOMERS: From May 19 – May 24 the City will have limited ability to process permits and schedule inspections. We are replacing our IT systems and will start using our new system on or about May 24th. You should expect delays in processing starting May 19th continuing through early June. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we make improvements to serve you better.**
