Property maintenance is important. Maintaining property helps keep property values up which also makes Cañon City a desirable place to visit, live, and start a business. Property maintenance also reduces crime, keeps wildlife safe, and promotes health and wellness of residents and visitors. The City encourages residents to comply with City ordinances that relate to the maintenance of their property – keeping weeds cut, maintaining the right-of-way between their property and the street, proper storage of equipment and personal property, disposing of trash and litter in a timely manner and generally, maintaining their property so that it does not become detrimental to the surrounding neighborhood. To that end, the City, through its Code Enforcement Division, enforces these and other nuisances. See the Municipal Code for specific information.
