In addition, the ordinance is intended to promote safety and further preserve and enhance the quality of life for residents of the City dwelling in multi-family units.  To learn more about the program, please visit the Multi-Family Inspection Program's (MFIP) web page at www.cityofconcord.org/MFIP.
