Together We Make the Community Better

Austin Code makes sure city codes and ordinances are met so Austin continues to be a livable city. We do this by educating, collaborating and partnering with neighborhoods, local businesses, non-profits, and other City of Austin Departments.

The Austin Code Department maintains the balance between code compliance and code enforcement by implementing programs to ensure a minimum standard is met.

Code Officers identify dangerous and substandard conditions in each of the districts they are assigned.

City codes and ordinances have been created to protect the health, safety, and quality of life for the citizens of Austin. If there is a problem property in your neighborhood, call 3-1-1. And remember, you can always call anonymously.
