Nuisance & Code Violation Abatement
Staff Response
From time to time persons in the community may engage in activities contrary to the rules and regulations established to protect property and structures. This may come in the form of a use of land not permitted under zoning regulations. It might be construction or renovation without a permit. Or it might be a general nuisance such as poorly kept property.

The Community and Economic Development Department staff attempts to respond to all reported violations, and to the degree possible, work with property owners to correct the situation. In many instances it is an innocent error where the property owner had no idea there was a violation. Often, a simple notification rectifies things.

Report Violations
The public is encouraged to assist the Community and Economic Development Department by reporting suspected violations online.

For more information on violations please read the following sections of the Municipal Code:
  • Chapter 8.20 - Chapter 8.20  of the Valdez Municipal Code outlines nuisances.
