Code Compliance Department
“We are the Stewards of Doral- A resourceful team dedicated to Service, Honesty, Resiliency, and Professionalism.”
Maintaining your neighborhood and community’s quality of life is the primary responsibility of the Code Compliance Department. We are a community oriented Department that strives to achieve voluntary compliance. The Department monitors residential and commercial districts for potential violations of the City Codes and Ordinances and are also responsible for ensuring compliance with the Miami-Dade County Code and parts of the Florida Building Code.
The Code Compliance Department proactively patrols the city identifying violations, but we also accept complaints from concerned citizens. We do have normal working hours and in the event that a violation is observed outside of our normal working hours, the City has Doral311 which is available to its concerned residents and property owners and can make complaints via this service.
The Code Compliance Department also has a very energetic Community Outreach Program where the Department’s Outreach Coordinators organize important community workshops in order to educate the residents and businesses of the Doral Community. If you would like important information about these workshops or any other important topics, then we encourage you to join our mailing list.
Our offices are located at City Hall, 8401 NW 53rd Terrace, Doral, FL 33166. For general questions and/or to give a complaint, you may contact us by phone at 305-593-6680 or e-mail email@example.com.
Beginning July 1, 2021, the Florida Governor signed into law Senate Bill 60, which now prohibits all code compliance departments in the State of Florida from initiating investigations into potential violations of a code or ordinance by way of an anonymous complaint.
A person who reports a potential violation MUST PROVIDE his or her name and address before an investigation occurs. This new rule does not apply if the code inspector believes that the violation presents an imminent threat to the public health, safety, or welfare or imminent destruction of habitat or sensitive resources.
