Code Compliance Neighborhood Inspection Program - The south central communities bounded by Bullard Pkwy/Temple Terrace Hwy to the north, the Hillsborough River/Harney Rd to the south, S. Glen Arven Ave/ West River Dr to the west, and N. 78th St to the east have been selected for inspection by the Temple Terrace Code Compliance Department. Beginning Thursday, March 21 and continuing through the end of the week between 8am and 5pm. Code enforcement officers will be in that neighborhood verifying that dwellings, accessory structures, yards and vehicles are consistent with City Code standards. Officers will not walk onto property to inspect it. If a violation is observed from the right-of-way, a courtesy notice will be left at the residence identifying the item(s) of concern.
We Live Local - Florida’s cities, towns and villages are unique centers of economic, social and cultural energy. However, according to the Florida League of Cities (FLC), special interests are hijacking our hometowns and now, more than ever, citizens need to understand what’s at stake. We Live Local is an FLC campaign to educate Floridians about local self-government, or Home Rule, which gives municipalities the flexibility to address unique local needs with local solutions.
