The Permit Center will be closed on Thursday, Dec. 7, 2023, from 10:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. for staff to participate in a year-end All-Hands Training.
Our Code Enforcement staff respond to a variety of complaints of violations of the Long Beach Municipal Code, including substandard buildings, property maintenance, inoperative vehicles, weed abatement, and land use violations.
When violations are identified, the responsible parties are contacted and requested to abate the conditions. Failure to correct violations could result in a citation or a referral to the City Prosecutor's office.
Long Beach is divided into three Code Enforcement areas that are aligned with the existing North, West and East divisions of the Police Department. Each area is assigned a code enforcement team that works with individuals, neighborhood associations, and local business groups to resolve code enforcement issues and maintain the safety and livability of the community.
