The mission of the Department of Code Compliance is to provide services to protect the lives, property and environment of our community by providing a resource of trained professionals that promote and protect the integrity of our neighborhoods.  This is accomplished through the enforcement of the Zoning Ordinance, Building Codes and other safety codes utilizing communication, cooperation and education in partnership with the community.

We are dedicated to being a leader in code compliance and committed to responsive resolution of neighborhood concerns.

Our department investigates most neighborhood, quality of life complaints. This includes everything from neighbors parking in the grass to junk in the yard to overcrowding to hoarding to unpermitted construction.

We investigate and enforce violations of multiple codes and ordinances, including:

  • Zoning
  • Property Maintenance
  • Building (non-permitted construction)
  • Grass
  • Blight
  • Noise
  • Fire (some non-commercial segments)

We only conduct investigations based on complaints received from the public or internal referrals from other county agencies. The public can submit complaints online or by calling us.

If you have questions about what we investigate or for help with specific kinds of complaints, call us at 703-324-1300, TTY 711, or visit us in the Herrity Building, 10th floor.
