Code Enforcement

Code Enforcement staff work in partnership with the people of Murrieta to help promote and maintain a safe and desirable living and working environment; to improve the quality of Murrieta’s neighborhoods through education, enforcement, and abatement; and, to respond to community concerns and attain code compliance while maintaining high professional standards and continually seeking improvements and innovations.

To help establish clear purpose and set reasonable expectations, the Department developed a Case Prioritization and Process Guide. This guide establishes standard processing procedures and policies for all code compliance cases, including case prioritization and targeted timeline standards.

Our objective under this program is not to be punitive, but to ensure awareness and compliance with established codes and regulations, which are ultimately intended to protect public health and safety and maintain the unique quality of life we currently enjoy in Murrieta.
