Why was I reported for a violation and not my neighbor?

Code Compliance investigations are the result of public complaints, or referrals from the Board of Supervisors or other agencies regarding conditions on specific properties. We are obligated to act upon those complaints and resolve any violations that may be present.


Every effort is made to enforce Nevada County standards fairly and consistently. If conditions on another property are of concern to you, please report them to the Code Compliance Division, using the complaint form (PDF).
