Following a short pause while the City developed procedures to ensure the safety of the public and City inspectors during the COVID-19 pandemic, Champaign’s Code Compliance Division has now implemented virtual interior code inspections of residential dwelling units and resumed limited-contact inspection of vacant units. The City has also resumed exterior code violation inspections for tall grass, garbage accumulations, stagnant water, dangerous trees, and similar nuisances.
Inspections also continue to be performed for cases involving issues that may render a dwelling unit unfit for human occupancy (i.e. lack of utilities, structural damage, fire damage, etc.). All other code compliance complaints will continue to be logged and other inspection types will be added in the future, although, residents should be prepared for an increased wait time for inspections.
