Code Compliance


Our mission is to ensure the people of Fair Oaks Ranch are abiding by the City's ordinances and codes as determined by City Council. These regulations have been enacted to maintain health, safety, order, to ensure property rights and values, and to maintain the aesthetics that exist in Fair Oaks Ranch.

Code Compliance is the inspection, improvement, and rehabilitation of public and private premises. This is done by reviewing ordinances and codes and conducting routine field visits to identify violations concerning fire and health hazards, nuisance violations, or unsafe building conditions. The City enforces its standards and requirements through the Fair Oaks Ranch Code of Ordinances and the Unified Development Code.

  • Maintaining construction sites in a visually appealing manner has been an ongoing challenge for our City. Please be advised that the trash containers on individual construction sites are there for builders use only. Personal trash needs to be disposed of appropriately and not in these construction containers. Depositing personal trash in a builder’s container could be considered illegal dumping and a fine may be issued. Please report any illegal dumping on the Citizen Problem Reporter.
