Code Enforcement

Through the Code Enforcement program, city staff works to protect the health, safety, and welfare of Sugar Land residents through the reasonable enforcement of the city's codes and ordinances. Code Enforcement works with multiple city departments in the enforcement of the Code of Ordinances, the Development Code, and the International Property Maintenance Code (IPMC). By conducting both proactive and responsive code enforcement, we ensure that the homes and businesses throughout the city are well maintained and remain in compliance with applicable codes and ordinances.
