Public Notification of Code Violations
In January 2020, the Board of Supervisors approved a departmental policy that provides greater access to the department’s code violation information for properties in unincorporated Santa Clara County.
The purpose of the policy is to promote greater community notification for and public access to information about code violations that may affect the public interest, public health, safety, welfare, or the environment. The policy also provides for use of the department’s email notification lists as a notification method for code violation information.
Any revisions or rescission of this policy by the department require 60 days’ notice to the Board of Supervisors.
