Code Enforcement

Neighborhood Preservation Unit (NPU)

The Modesto City Council has adopted City Codes and ordinance specifically designed to provide all citizens access to great safe neighborhoods.
Although the Neighborhood Preservation Unit (NPU) is responsible for ensuring compliance with these codes and ordinances, the NPU team cannot solve every problem within a neighborhood.  However, NPU will partner with other city departments to find the root of the problem and strive to initiate positive change.

The NPU team consists of highly motivated and experienced code enforcement officers who understand neighborhood dynamics and are passionate about solving problems.
