Code Enforcement

The Town Buena Vista Code Enforcement Mission Statement

The Mission of Code Enforcement is to serve the citizens of Buena Vista by encouraging voluntary compliance with all adopted Town codes through effective public contact and education, while building cooperative partnerships throughout our community and enforcing the law in an equitable and impartial manner.

Code Enforcement Priorities

The Town of Buena Vista has identified the following areas of priority for Code Enforcement:

  • Protect private property owners’ investments
  • Promote public health, safety and welfare
  • Educate residents
  • Perform community outreach
  • Enhance the quality of life and appearance in our neighborhoods

Community Involvement

Town residents can take an active role in maintaining and improving the quality and condition of properties in their neighborhood by following the Town of Buena Vista Municipal Code. These codes provide regulations to safeguard life, health, property and the public’s welfare.

It is the Town’s policy to encourage voluntary code compliance by providing code violators and other responsible persons with the opportunity to comply with Town codes without penalty. Voluntary compliance generally is less expensive for all parties and of a more satisfactory and lasting nature than involuntary compliance. Varied methods should allow code enforcement flexibility in creatively finding solutions to code enforcement issues.

The Town of Buena Vista encourages its citizens to become community-minded. You are encouraged to get to know your neighborhood and meet your neighbors. Working together we can provide and maintain safe, clean and attractive neighborhoods. Citizens are also encouraged to cooperate with one another in a friendly manner to resolve minor concerns before contacting Code Enforcement for assistance.

Remember to check Chaffee County Tax Assessor’s website to determine if you are within Town Limits. Some Buena Vista addresses are not within Town Limits and would fall under Chaffee County jurisdiction.
