To maintain safe and attractive neighborhoods throughout the city, DHCD's Code Enforcement Division enforces the city's housing, zoning, building and related codes. Recently the division was reorganized and restructured to increase efficiency while making it more accessible to Baltimore residents. Working together, we are a powerful team, committed to maintaining the appearance and value of Baltimore's neighborhoods.
This web site was created to help landlords, homeowners, renters and community groups understand the many codes and how residents can work with us to help keep neighborhoods strong by providing aggressive and equitable code enforcement.
