Code Enforcement


The Code Enforcement Division enforces provisions of the Zoning Ordinance and other City ordinances, promoting the public health and safety for all members of the Half Moon Bay community. 

By enforcing City code, we are also making our community more inviting, comfortable, and aesthetically-pleasing. We all take pride in Half Moon Bay, and our Code Enforcement function contributes to that pride!

The code enforcement process is typically initiated in response to a complaint from someone who observes an alleged violation.
