Code Compliance

The Code Compliance function of Community Development is responsible for the enforcement of City Ordinances and State Codes which address zoning, signage, public health, safety and select building codes.

Report a Code Compliance Violation

You may report a potential code compliance violation by opening a Citizen Request at this location. You may also make a report by calling the Code Compliance Division at (407) 260-3465.

Important Information About Anonymous Complaints

Effective July 1, 2021, changes to Florida Statutes through Senate Bill 60 prohibit cities from initiating inspections of potential code violations by way of anonymous complaints. A person who reports a potential violation of a code or ordinance must provide their name and address before an investigation occurs. Any information provided to the City is subject to Florida's Public Records laws and as such, will be provided upon request.

Code Compliance is presently pro-active City-wide including in residential areas.

Verify Your Address

Longwood Code Compliance can only investigate complaints within the city limits of the City of Longwood. Many areas with a Longwood address, including any address that is West of I-4, are not within the city limits. If you'd like to check to see whether you are within the City limits, you can utilize the Seminole County Property Appraiser's map search to verify your taxing district - which will give you the agency you need to contact for code compliance issues.

Special Magistrate Hearings

The Special Magistrate has authority to hear and decide alleged violations of the City Codes. Meetings are held regularly on the fourth (4th) Thursday of each month at 9:00 a.m. in the City Commission Chambers unless there is no business scheduled.
