A strategic code enforcement program can help local governments proactively reverse the impacts of vacant properties. Gaining compliance from owner-occupants and landlords, however, is as much a function of economics as it is of code enforcement. A strategic approach, therefore, adapts to economic conditions that vary block by block.

This webinar will outline the elements of a strategic code enforcement program, including regulation, policy, cost recovery, and “carrots & sticks” for both rental and owner-occupied units. Tools to be discussed include administrative remedies, nuisance abatement, receivership, rental registration and licensing, and alignment with broader neighborhood stabilization efforts.
