Report A Violation

The Zoning Enforcement Department of the MPC averages over 3,500 zoning inspections per year. Since there are only three enforcement officers who cover the entire planning limits (approximately 300 square miles), violations are handled on a complaint basis. The Zoning Enforcement Department depends greatly on the general pubic to notify it when violations, or suspected violations, are found. Types of zoning violations typically reported to the Zoning Enforcement Department include:

  • Illegal signs
  • Farm animals
  • Auto repair in residential areas
  • Home-based businesses
  • Vehicles parked in yards
  • Large vehicles parked in non-designated areas
  • Commercial businesses operating in residential areas
  • Boarding houses

  • Illegal fences
  • Construction without permits
