Whom to Contact / Resources
Resolving Public Nuisance Problems
The Community Preservation and Building Division staff work closely with all City departments in order to resolve health, safety, and public nuisance problems that may adversely affect the quality of life for citizens of Emeryville. The Program focuses on public education as the primary measure to gain voluntary compliance with the Emeryville Municipal Code and steers abatement measures through coordinated and cooperative measures.

The majority of reported problems are resolved on the initial contact by the Community Preservation Officer and Building Inspection Staff. Administrative penalties may be assessed to those who fail to comply with the municipal code.
