The Neighborhood Preservation Division is responsible for enforcing the City's nuisance code and property maintenance code. Code enforcement helps to improve and stabilize neighborhoods, protect property values and promote a healthier and safer environment. In addition, the division now includes the Dangerous Building Demolitions and Nuisance Abatement programs.
There is a direct correlation between code violations and crime. Uncorrected code violations also reduce property values and contribute to the appearance of blight and neglect. Please promptly inform us of any nuisance or property maintenance code violations and immediately resolve any code violations that may be on your property.
- Provide timely professional code enforcement to the residents of Kansas City, Mo.
- Help ensure neighborhoods are improved and stabilized through code enforcement and, when necessary, abatement of code violations.
- Help protect property values, and achieve a healthier and safer environment for residents.
The 2012-2013 Abatement
cycle is largely completed due to funding restrictions, except for emergency cases and those publicly-owned properties being maintained through the neighborhood Adopt-a-Lot program. The 2012 list of Land trust, City, and Urban Homesteading properties is available for download as an Excel document
, if you wish to see what lots are in your neighborhood. If you have questions or are interested in this Adopt-a-Lot process, please contact John Parks at 816-513-8433.
