Get ready for routine neighborhood inspections

Now that the snow has melted, Minneapolis residents should make sure to clean up any nuisance conditions in their yards before routine neighborhood inspections. Housing Inspections Services staff look for nuisance violations throughout the year to help keep Minneapolis safe, clean and livable, but they are most common in the spring, summer and fall.

Property owners with nuisance violations will get a letter and about a week to resolve the violations. If they don’t resolve violations by the due date, contractors will complete the work, and the property owner will be charged a fee. Anyone with questions about a letter regarding nuisance violations can call 311.

Some resources exist to help seniors, veterans and disabled people.
