623-930-3610

Glendale City Council has adopted a variety of city codes (local laws) to promote public health and safety and preserve the quality of life in our neighborhoods. The Code Compliance Department is responsible for ensuring compliance with these codes and accomplishes this through a combination of education and enforcement. In addition to the most common codes enforced by the Department (grass/weed height, trash and debris in public view, items stored in public view, front yard parking, and inoperable vehicles) the Code Compliance Department also enforces codes related to:

swimming pool water and discharge Water contained in swimming pools, architectural pools, ponds or spas must be properly maintained to prevent polluted or stagnant water or any other conditions that may breed insects or result in insect or other infestations. Additionally, the discharge of water from any swimming pool, architectural pool or spa into any public street, alleyway or rights-of-way is prohibited.

vehicle repairs Ongoing vehicle repairs at the same residence are prohibited. Any vehicle that is undergoing repairs must be titled to the owner or occupant of the property. Vehicle repairs are limited to three (3) per calendar year. Repair work shall be performed on no more than one vehicle at a time.

trees, bushes and shrubs All trees, bushes and shrubs must be trimmed so they do not obstruct vision or travel of motorists or pedestrians or obstruct traffic signs, signals or lighting. Tree limbs must be maintained to hang no lower than twelve (12) feet above any public street or alleyway and seven (7) feet above any public sidewalk.

yard or garage sales Yard or garage sales are limited within residential districts to three (3) within a twelve-month period and can be for no more than 48 hours in duration. Yard sale signs cannot be placed in the public rights-of-way which includes sidewalks, street sign poles, light or utility poles.

We Look Forward to Hearing from You! Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all on the same team, and we appreciate your assistance and cooperation in helping us keep our neighborhoods safe and clean. Please contact us at www.GlendaleAZ.com/CodeCompliance or 623-930-3610 to report possible violations in your neighborhood.
