Town introduces zoning enforcement violations dashboard 

Wednesday, October 7, 2020 - 12:00pm

The Town of Wake Forest has launched a new web-based dashboard that allows residents to view zoning enforcement violations by address. Available at http://bit.ly/WFZoningEnforcement, the platform also allows residents to track the type of violation, the current number of open and closed cases, and the Town’s response.

“This is another way we are offering insight into our efforts to manage and foster a safe and vibrant community,” said Planning Director Courtney Tanner. “We believe this tool emphasizes the importance we place on transparency, communicating with our citizens and responding to their concerns in an efficient and public manner.”

Zoning enforcement is an extension of the Planning Department. Typical code violations involve one or a combination of the following areas related to the Unified Development Ordinance (UDO) and/or Municipal Code:

  • Tall Grass/Weeds

  • Trash/Debris on Private Property

  • Junk and Abandon Vehicles

  • Abandoned Structures

  • Illegal Signs

  • Illegal Uses

  • Landscaping Violations

Through the efforts of the Town’s Zoning Compliance Officer, the Planning Department strives to correct all applicable violations within a timely and effective manner.

Anyone wishing to report a violation may do so via SeeClickFix at www.wakeforestnc.gov/report-problem. For more information, visit http://bit.ly/WFZoningEnforcement or contact Zoning Compliance Officer Brad Pleasant at 919-435-9541 or bpleasant@wakeforestnc.gov.
