Code Compliance

Mission Statement

Code Compliance is dedicated to preserving a safe, clean, friendly community for all our citizens. We are committed to working with the public on compliance of City codes through education, awareness, and enforcement.

Code Compliance responds to concerns about possible code violations occurring on private property. We work with reported violations of a variety of codes and ordinances. Our goal is to inform, educate and provide a reasonable opportunity for voluntary compliance.

Code enforcement is a critical component to maintaining the health, safety, and vitality of the City of Sequim. 

We are complaint driven, which means we investigate once we are made aware of a potential violation.

If you need to report a violation or concern, please complete a Request for Code Compliance Action.
