Please be prepared to provide the street address of the property you are complaining about and specifics regarding the complaint. While anonymous complaints are accepted, providing your name and contact information will allow the Code Officers to reach you in case there are additional questions regarding the complaint. Please be aware that there are several properties located within Nampa's boundaries that have not been annexed into the City, in which case the Code Compliance Division will advise you to contact Canyon County with your complaint.
Upon receipt of a complaint, a Code Enforcement Officer will visit the property to determine whether there is a violation of Nampa City Code. If so, the Code Enforcement Officer will contact the property owner regarding the violation and attempt to obtain voluntary compliance through communication and courtesy and followup notices. It is the City of Nampa's experience that this course of action is highly effective in obtaining compliance; however, when voluntary compliance does not occur and a violation persists, the City of Nampa Code Enforcement will mail and/or post a notice ordering the property owner to abate the violation within a specified time period. Absent a timely response to this notice, Code Enforcement may then proceed to abate the violation, assess the costs against the property owner by tax lien, and/or may issue a uniform citation and forward the case for civil or criminal prosecution.
Responsible parties must be provided notice that there is a problem or a violation that exists on their property. They will be provided with a reasonable time period in which to correct the violation(s). In some instances, the time frames are based on due process statutes. Please know complaints and concerns are important and will be handled in the most expeditious and appropriate manner.

Property owners are responsible for the maintenance of all adjacent rights-of-was, to include; sidewalks, curbs and gutters. Maintenance means not only the removal of all weeds, debris, obstructions, and snow, but also for the replacement or repair of any damaged sidewalks, curbs and gutters. For information on the City of Nampa's Local Improvement District Program, visit https://www.cityofnampa.us/184/Local-Improvement-Districts-LIDs. A Local Improvement District (LID) is a form of financing through the city that provides property owners an economical way to pay the hookup or construction costs of upgrading various utilities and/or infrastructure. The utilities and/or infrastructure may include pressurized irrigation, sewer, domestic water, sidewalks, curbs, and gutters. Payments are made through property assessments with a long-term payment plan and relatively low-interest rates.
