Code Enforcement Overview

Our goal is to preserve a community for a lifetime.  To achieve this goal we must maintain and enhance existing commercial and residential areas. In order to ensure a safe community and a high quality living environment for the citizens of Arvada we are required to implement nuisance codes and zoning ordinances.

Code Enforcement responds and resolves enforcement issues, reviews building and other permits, provides customer service and pro-actively removes illegal signage from the city right of way.
