EL PASO COUNTY – Citizens living in unincorporated areas of El Paso County can now easily submit a code violation online through EDARP.

“We respond when a complaint of alleged zoning or code violation is received,” Mindy Madden, Code Enforcement Supervisor, said.

County staff does not go out looking for violations but relies on citizens and neighbors to report them.

Code violations can include ordinance violations such as graffiti, unsafe buildings, noise levels, land development violations like requiring the removal of weeds and brush, inoperable vehicles, animal keeping and development standards for fences, walls, and hedges.

Click here to submit a code violation. You will need the address and a description of the violation.

Citizens can also include pictures and your contact information with the submission.

You can also submit anonymously.

Incorporated areas such as Colorado Springs, Monument, and Manitou Springs are not under the county’s code enforcement jurisdiction. Contact your city in regards to violations in an incorporated area.

El Paso County put together a video with instructions on how to submit and follow a code violation.
