Code Enforcement

Sandy Springs Code Enforcement is comprised of sworn officers who work with residents, neighborhood associations, business, non-profits and other City departments to create and maintain safe, healthy and attractive living and working environments. Through fair and unbiased enforcement of adopted City Codes – such as land use and zoning ordinances, health and housing codes, sign standards and building and fire codes – the main objective for Code Enforcement is to gain compliance.

Sandy Springs Code Enforcement officers are always in uniform, with badge and name tag, and can produce an official ID card with photo and City logo.
