A key activity managed by the Community Development Department is Code Enforcement. Code Enforcement encourages voluntary Municipal Code compliance by providing residents, business operators, property owners, and tenants the opportunity, with sufficient notice and information, to comply with the Hawaiian Gardens Municipal Code and other applicable laws and requirements.

  • Enforcing the City’s Municipal Code
  • Issuing warning notices
  • Issuing administrative citations
