The City of Calistoga has established a code enforcement program to ensure compliance with the City’s laws and regulations for land use, zoning, building, housing, and environmental health.  The City places a high priority on code compliance as a means of accomplishing adopted community goals, such as maintaining the quality of neighborhoods, avoiding nuisances, and protecting the environment. The code enforcement is not intended to be selective or discriminatory against any one individual, group, area, or business. Alleged code violations are investigated by Staff as they are reported or discovered, and steps are taken to resolve confirmed violations prior to initiation of abatement procedures.

The program also includes proactively providing information to educate the public about the City’s rules and regulations. By providing educational material, inadvertent code violations are avoided and the number of violation cases is reduced.

If you see something that could be a health and safety issue or that seems odd or out-of-place, please contact the Planning and Building Department at (707) 942-2827 or complete the Citizen Complaint form below and submit to 1235 Washington Street, Calistoga.
