City Code

Our city codes help ensure our community stays healthy and safe!

The Environmental Health program is responsible for investigating and responding to property maintenance complaints. Concerns range from general nuisances to housing maintenance issues, such as:

  • Long grass
  • Junk and debris
  • Exterior storage
  • Inoperable vehicles
  • Broken windows
  • Deteriorating siding/roofs

Know The Code

The City of Brooklyn Park produced videos to assist our residents with information on city ordinances.
