  • Commercial use or vehicles on a residentially zoned property

Inoperative vehicles, auto parts, trash, junk, appliances or similar materials cannot be stored outside. However, if these items are kept inside an enclosed structure, the activity does not constitute a zoning violation.

A notice of violation will be sent to the owner of the property to give them time to correct it. If the steps to compliance are not seen after repeated attempts to contact the owner, zoning will refer the matter to the courts.

If you get a zoning violation, and have a question, please contact the inspector listed on the violation. For all zoning violations and complaints please call (505) 314-0367.
