It is the purpose and intent of the Inspections Department to have voluntary conformance to all codes and standards within our jurisdiction throughout the city. Where voluntary conformance is not forthcoming, the Building Inspection Department must institute steps to mandate code compliance.

The following steps constitute the general process of code compliance enforcements:
1. A first notice of violation results in a request for the property owner (violator) to contact the office so that a remedial course of action may be taken.
2. If the property owner does not respond to the first letter of violation, a second and final notice of violation is sent.
3. If the second notice is ignored or not acted upon, a summons to Cranston Municipal Court is issued. These enforcement activities are essential to maintain the safety, welfare, and quality of life in Cranston.
