The City of Bowling Green Code Enforcement is responsible for enforcing a variety of City Ordinances, however, zoning ordinances are one of the main areas of enforcement activities. Code Enforcement strives for achieving voluntary compliance, with the ultimate goal of providing a high quality of life for Bowling Green residents. A proactive approach to equitable enforcement of City Ordinances is utilized, however, residents are encouraged to contact the City with concerns, also.
Common Code Enforcement activities are broad, but often include:
Illegal use / over-occupancy of dwelling units
Illegal construction (no permit or structure does not meet minimum regulations)
Illegal signs (no permit or sign is not located in the proper location)
Relaying all other concerns to the property authority (such as interior/exterior housing maintenance and sanitation issues to the Wood County Health Department, heavy items left in the right-of-way to Public Works, etc.)
