Codes Compliance Programs:

The City of Williamsburg, through its Codes Compliance Division, offer several programs as part of a city-wide effort to promote safer housing, heighten awareness of building safety, and support neighborhood quality of life for city residents. Elements include city-wide curbside inspections (N.I.P.) of all properties on a rotating basis, adjacent property and occupant complaints, and a recently adopted Rental Inspection Program.

Neighborhood Improvement Program (N.I.P.)

The Neighborhood Improvement Program enforced city-wide since 1998 is performed on a rotating basis. This program looks for exterior building and property conditions that violate city and state codes. Some of these codes contain provisions for inoperable motor vehicles, exterior storage, trash and debris, grass and weed maintenance, vehicle parking requirements, trash container storage, and general exterior building maintenance. Violations of these codes contain mostly civil penalties, but an opportunity to correct violations is always given before any legal action is initiated.
