Neighborhood identity is shaped largely by the character, maintenance and standards within a community. In Aurora, we care about our community and hope you do too. Learn more about what you can do to maintain and enhance your home or rental property.
The Department is empowered with the authority to address many significant code violations. However, issues that seem small to some can have a great impact on the daily lives of many residents.

Animal control ordinances
Dangerous living conditions
Dead animals in the right-of-way
