What is not a code violation?

There are some conditions or neighborhood issues that are not considered violations of the Danville Municipal Code. These conditions or neighborhood issues do not fall under Code Enforcement for enforcement. Code Enforcement does not enforce issues between residents that are civil in nature and does not enforce Covenants, Codes and Restrictions (CC&Rs). CC&Rs are a private agreement between property owners and are commonly enforced by the residential Homeowners' Association (HOA) or property management company.

The Town recommends that neighbors try to communicate with each other to work out their disputes. Neighbor Law, by Cora Jordan, is a resource that can help when researching tips and advice on how to resolve and restore good neighborhood relations. If the matter cannot be resolved through communication, the parties may choose to use the services of mediation or a civil court process.
