The Building and Community Standards Department is responsible for:
  • Monitoring building construction through plan review activities and site visits,
  • Inspecting residential rental properties to ensure minimum health and life safety standards are met,
  • Addressing community concerns such as property maintenance, zoning codes, sign codes, public nuisances, and various quality of life codes.
  • Monitoring and coordinating foreclosure related issues and the vacant building program.

Several educational materials have been developed to help make your construction projects and neighborhood experiences safe and pleasant. If you have questions about building or community standards or suggestions for improvement, please contact us.

Department Mission
The department is committed to providing all those who choose to make Brooklyn Center their home, occupational center, or place to visit, quality service related to development, property maintenance, and code enforcement.  Quality service is provided through the use of modern technology and practices and quality assurance management.
