Forest Park residents expect high standards of property maintenance, with well-kept homes, clean streets, uncluttered commercial areas, and repairs that are made promptly. The Property Maintenance Division of the Community Development Department takes a proactive role in upholding these community standards.
The Property Maintenance Division also responds to complaints (link to online form) regarding property maintenance or upkeep.
If necessary, a citation can be issued to bring an owner into compliance with the standards of the community, but our experience has been that about 90% of owners will take care of a problem voluntarily when notified of it.
