The Code Enforcement Division is responsible for the Code Board, Code Liens, Enforcement of the City’s Code of Ordinances, and Rapid Response Team. 

The Fort Myers Code Enforcement Division is responsible for enforcement of the City’s Code of Ordinances. Codes have been adopted over the years to protect the health, safety, and welfare of all who live, work, or visit in our city. The standards established in the codes ensure a positive effect on property value, community appearance, and neighborhood pride.

Adherence to City Codes and maintenance of property is the responsibility of each and every citizen. Structures that are not maintained deteriorate, devalue neighborhoods, encourage crime, and contribute to the blight in our community. As the city ages, it becomes even more critical for property owners to be aware of, and comply with, these codes. Code Enforcement provides an effective means of educating and enforcing the Code of Ordinances to ensure that our city ages gracefully.

Code Enforcement protects the health, safety and welfare of all property owners in the City of Fort Myers – residents, business, and visitors – establish standards and ordinances which ensure positive effects on property value, community appearance and neighborhood pride – and to partner and network with other communities in our efforts to stay at the forefront of creative and effective code enforcement.
