Quality of Life Operations

The Office of Code Compliance aims at making the City of Miami streets safer, and our parks and neighborhoods cleaner. Below are several quality of life concerns that the Office of Code Compliance addresses in an effort to improve the quality of life in our neighborhoods:



Abandoned and Inoperable Vehicles:

The goal of this initiative is to cite abandoned, inoperable, and untagged vehicles throughout the City of Miami. This improves the appearance of the City’s neighborhoods.


Illegal Mechanical Repairs:

There are a number of City residents who repair vehicles from their homes. Code Compliance has been working to crack down on this type of activity as it is a violation of City regulations and has serious environmental and visual consequences for surrounding neighborhoods.


Illegal Units:

There are residential properties throughout the City with multiple, illegal additions. These properties are not only in violation of City code, but those residences with three or more illegal units create an eye sore in the middle of neighborhoods as property owners often create mini-parking lots in front of the home.


Facades, Junk in yards, Vacant & Unsecured properties

Code Enforcement continues to enforce regulations that aim at keeping the City looking pristine.


Tax Revenue Task Force

The Department of Code Compliance launched the Tax Revenue Task Force with the goal of locating and citing unlicensed businesses throughout the City. As part of this operation, Code Compliance Inspectors visit businesses with the license applications in hand. If a business does not have proper licensing, the Inspector provides the necessary paper work facilitating the process for the owner.
