The Zoning Code Enforcement Office employs five uniformed officers certified by the Florida Association of Code Enforcement.  The office receives approximately 3500 requests per year from approximately 168,000 citizens and cover close to 400 square miles in Seminole County.

The County is divided into sections based on the number of complaints received each year.  A section is then assigned to an officer to investigate all complaints received from citizens in that area.  Please feel free to call and make an appointment to meet your Code Enforcement Officer.

Code Enforcement personnel are always available to attend special meetings, Homeowners Association Meetings or Neighborhood Association Meetings to educate and inform the public about the importance of code enforcement in their communities.
