Extended Hours for Code Enforcement Service

Author: Department of Planning & Building
Date: 4/12/2018 4:28:25 PM

County Code Enforcement is now offering an on-call service for community issues that may come up on weekends and holidays.

The County of San Luis Obispo Department of Planning and Building's Code Enforcement team will begin a weekend and holiday on-call service for the unincorporated areas of the county, starting Friday, May 4, 2018. Residents will be able to call (805) 788-2350 and speak directly with the on-call County Code Enforcement Officer. The on-call hours will be:

  • Friday from 5 p.m. until 10 p.m.
  • Saturday from 8 a.m. until 10 p.m.
  • Sunday from 8 a.m. until 10 p.m.
  • Holidays from 8 a.m. until 10 p.m.

This service will allow people to report violations such as unpermitted grading, work that is causing environmental damage, unpermitted temporary events, and violations of event conditions. These types of activities often occur on weekends outside of Code Enforcement’s normal business hours. The environmental damage can be extensive and typically irreparable. The Department is hoping to reduce or eliminate these types of weekend problems by providing the on-call service.

During normal business hours, residents can continue to report violations by calling (805) 781-5600 or by visiting the department website at and filling out the online reporting form
