Code Enforcement – (805) 583-6753
The City of Simi Valley has adopted municipal codes to enhance the quality of life for its residents and provide equitable standards for the business community. The Code Enforcement Section enforces municipal ordinances and permit compliance by promoting voluntary compliance through working in partnership with the citizens and businesses of Simi Valley. This is accomplished through administering programs, responding to citizen questions and concerns, and enforcing regulations that preserve, protect, and enhance the livability, appearance, and the social and economic conditions of the community. Code Enforcement Officers respond proactively and reactively to violations of the Municipal Code which include the following:
- Open Storage of Materials
- Property Maintenance
- Stagnant Swimming Pools
- Temporary Signs
- Trash Accumulations
- Trash Cans not placed behind a side yard fence, gate, or wall
- Weed Abatement on vacant parcels
The City of Simi Valley encourages residents to work with their neighbors, homeowners association, and business community to resolve problems. However, if a resolution can’t be achieved, a complaint may be filed with Code Enforcement in person, by mail, by fax, or by telephone. The reporting party will be required to provide their name, address, telephone number, the address or location of the complaint, and a description of the problem. All complaints will be kept confidential, subject to existing law. We are not able to accept anonymous complaints.
If you wish to file a complaint, please call Code Enforcement at (805) 583-6753, or complete the complaint form and mail or drop off the form to the Department of Community Services, Citizen Services Division, or send the complaint by fax to (805) 583-7949. If your concern involves any parking violation on public streets or inoperable vehicles on private property in public view, please visit SVPD Traffic Bureau for more information and to submit an online complaint form.

With the heat of summer upon us, mosquito transmitted diseases are a major concern. The City of Simi Valley wants every resident to be on the lookout for stagnant bodies of water that could be a breeding ground for mosquitoes. This would include, but is not limited to the following: swimming pools, uncovered Jacuzzi’s, fountains, and ponds.
The Simi Valley Municipal Code Section 6-9.01, which prohibits stagnant pools of water, states; “No person shall allow, suffer, permit, or maintain, whether by commission or omission, any standing or stagnant pool of water which, if left untreated or unabated, may be a source for mosquito breeding, uncontrolled weedy growth, or cause a malodorous condition or a condition dangerous for children.”
If you know about a stagnant pool or other body of water, please contact us at (805) 583-6753, Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. or complete and submit a complaint form online. To request further information or to report other public health or environment related issues, you can contact the Ventura County Environmental Health Department.
