Well-maintained residential properties encourage private and public investment in a neighborhood.
In order to monitor neighborhood conditions and identify signs of decline in their earliest stages, the City established the Residential Property Code Compliance Program, consisting of resident complaint investigations and systematic inspections.
Environmental Health conducts systematic inspections of all residential areas within Bloomington. Each property is inspected for violations of the City’s Code and, if observed, orders are issued for those violations. A property that is issued orders is given a reasonable time period to comply with the orders.
