The Neighborhood Preservation Program of the City of Union City Economic and Community Development Department assists in enforcing the City of Union City Municipal Code as it applies to property maintenance, property nuisances and other issues in residential and commercial zoning districts.
Neighborhood Preservation is staffed by Code Compliance Inspectors and works closely with all City departments in order to resolve health, safety, and public nuisance problems that may adversely affect the quality of life for citizens of Union City. The Program focuses on public education as the primary measure to gain voluntary compliance with the Union City Municipal Code and steers abatement measures through coordinated and cooperative measures. Over 90 percent of all reported problems are resolved on the initial contact by staff. Administrative penalties may be assessed to those who fail to comply with the municipal code.
You can report all non life-threatening violations, hazards, or nuisances in person, by mail, by calling 510-675-5315, or by email.
Some of the types of problems that we can address are:
- Auto Repairs
- Businesses Operating in Inappropriate Locations or without Permits
- Dangerous Swimming Pools
- Fence Height and Locations
- Illegal or Non-permitted Land Uses
- Structures Built without Permits
- Unsafe or Unsanitary Housing
- And many more…
You can help enhance the quality of life in Union City by reporting public nuisances, such as unsafe buildings, substandard dwellings, excessive or improper sign displays, or residential auto repairs.
The exact address where the suspected violation is occurring is extremely important. In addition, reporting more information about the complaint helps to provide a clearer picture of the nature of the violation.
