Multi-Family rental housing Inspection Program
On March 7, 2000, the Concord City Council adopted Ordinance Number 00-2 establishing the Multi-family Rental Dwelling Unit Inspection and Maintenance Code. The purpose of the ordinance is to proactively identify blighted and deteriorated housing stock and to ensure the rehabilitation or elimination of housing that does not meet minimum Building Code and Housing Code standards. 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 see our Multi-Family Rental Housing Inspection Program page.
