Code Enforcement

The City of Grovetown Code Enforcement is responsible for the enforcement of applicable federal, state and local codes and ordinances in order to provide a safe, fit and healthy environment for our residents, businesses and guests.  Our office investigates various complaints that are located throughout the City of Grovetown ranging from overgrown grass and weeds, dilapidated structures, trash and debris and inoperative vehicles.  Complaints may be submitted in person at Grovetown City Hall or by contacting our office at 706-860-5094.

Our city has adopted codes and ordinances and regulates land use according to both traditional (Municode, see link below) and ‘form-based’ codes. Codes and ordinances for traditional zoning focus on the idea that each space should have a singular use. Form-based zoning,on the other hand, also considers the aesthetics of building form as it relates to streetscape and adjacent uses, relying on design concepts intended to preserve the character of a community.

The codes used and enforced in the City of Grovetown are below.

A friendly reminder from the Grovetown Planning and Development Department

With the warm months and growing season upon us our department has been receiving numerous complaints from property owners regarding the condition of neighboring properties within the City. Owners, tenants, occupants and managers are reminded that it is your responsibility to maintain, and be responsible for cutting, mowing and removing grass/weeds before it reaches the 10” height restriction as prescribed by City ordinance. This is a gentle reminder in hopes of preventing any potential violations of our City ordinances, especially those related to property maintenance.

We thank you in advance for all your cooperation and dedication in maintaining your properties and improving the appearance of our community.
