Code awareness and compliance promotes the health, safety, and appeal of our community. The code process in Apple Valley is complaint driven and relies on assistance from the public. Here is how you can get in touch with us.
Code enforcement begins with a complaint. Complaints can be made by residents, the general public, or any city department. Generalized complaints regarding particular violations or neighborhoods are encouraged. Complaints are always kept anonymous. Code enforcement staff then conducts an inspection to identify violations present at the property of concern. Once verified, code staff becomes the complaint source and any information provided by the initial complainant will be used solely for the purpose of providing updates upon request. Code Enforcement will work with responsible individuals diligently and courteously until the matter is resolved. Please be aware that this process may take several weeks or months depending on the conditions requiring attention.
When making a complaint please be as specific as possible regarding the location (address & street of the property in violation) as well as a complete description of the conditions. There are several ways you can share your concerns with Code Enforcement:
- Online: at the City’s webpage by selecting “Report a Code Violation” under “Quick Links” on the Code Enforcement page at: http://www.ci.apple-valley.mn.us/index.aspx?nid=174 or by clicking the link below.
- Email: firstname.lastname@example.org

- Visit: Share your concerns in person with Code Enforcement Staff at the Municipal Center: 7100 147th Street W; located in the Community Development Department on the main floor.
Code enforcement works diligently and courteously with all property owners, managers, and residents towards resolving code violations in a timely manner. Please contact us with any questions or concerns regarding the code enforcement process.
