Mission Statement - To promote and maintain a safe, desirable living and working environment in Sandy. To preserve and improve the quality of our community by administering a fair and unbiased compliance program to correct issues of municipals codes and land use requirements.
The Sandy City Code Enforcement Division was formed in 1990 as part of the Community Development Department. The Division is charged with enforcing the Sandy City Land Development code and portions of the City's Municipal Code (such as weeds and junk).
Originally employing one part-time officer, the Division now has three full-time officers and support staff. Each officer is assigned to a district for the purpose of developing a rapport with area residents and businesses. This allows each to better understand the histories, challenges and concerns of their assigned neighborhood, thereby being equipped to address compliance issues specific to the area they serve. For contact information for the Code Enforcement Officer responsible for your area, go here.
The Sandy City Council has adopted Codes including the Sandy City Neighborhood Preservation Plan specifically designed to address blight, nuisances and to help maintain a clean environment for all citizens in our community.
You can help to make Sandy a better place to live, learn, work and play by familiarizing yourself with the standards and ordinances that are set forth for your own property or business.
