Frequently Asked QuestionsWhat is a Violation?
There are many types of zoning violations. Zoning ordinances contain standards regarding the use of land. The zoning ordinance can be found on the Weber County Planning Division Land Use Code.
Code enforcement does not enforce private matters, e.g., covenants or deed restrictions. These are civil matters that are dealt with privately.
How should a Neighborhood Issue Be Handled?
If your neighbor is in violation of the zoning ordinances or the county junk ordinance, it is recommended that the first step be to develop a relationship with your neighbor and talk to them about a mutual solution. If the “friendly neighbor” approach does not work or if this is not feasible, you may wish to contact Code Enforcement.
