Wondering what to do about that old car rusting away on your street? Or how about the trash and overgrown brush that’s turned that nearby lot into a fire hazard – and eyesore? Now, residents in the unincorporated communities of San Diego County can walk into one of four new Code Enforcement storefront offices and easily get the help they need.
“The idea was to have a face in the community,” said Pam Elias, Code Enforcement Chief. The new offices, in Spring Valley, Bonita, Ramona and Fallbrook, are open on Mondays. The pilot program is the first of its kind in San Diego County; more storefronts may be added.
“We want to provide residents with a convenient location within their community where they can stop in and meet with their assigned Code Enforcement Officer,” Elias said.
Code Enforcement, part of the County Department of Planning and Land Use, takes complaints about abandoned vehicles; brushing and clearing; building; grading and storm water; graffiti; noise; trailer coaches, fire hazards; and waste and zoning.
Residents can obtain information regarding County codes and other records that affect properties within their communities. Storefronts are open on Mondays at:
• Spring Valley Community Center, 8735 Jamacha Blvd.; 9 am to 4 pm.
• Bonita Public Safety Center, 4355 Bonita Rd.; 8 am to 4:30 pm.
• Ramona Community Center, 434 Aqua Lane; 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
• Fallbrook Sheriff’s Substation, 388 East Alvarado St.; 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
