The Code Enforcement Division is responsible for enforcing the property maintenance standards established by the Village of Homewood. Property maintenance impacts the property values of neighborhoods and the Village as a whole. The Division executes a proactive program to identify properties that do not meet standards. View a summary of Homewood's Property Maintenance Code. Residents who receive notification of violations are given time to correct the violations. Repeat violations or refusal to correct the violations may result in fines and/or court appearances. Violations may also be resolved through Homewood's Administrative Adjudication Program, which offers administrative civil hearings at Village Hall rather than Cook County Circuit Court (Markham, IL).
Contact the Building Department at 708-206-3385 regarding any questions pertaining property maintenance and code enforcement.
