ST. LUCIE COUNTY -- Driving through St. Lucie County on U.S. 1, a variety of different businesses and other properties can be seen. Starting on June 1, the St. Lucie County Code Enforcement will be checking all of these properties to make sure that what is being seen isn't violating any ordinances.
That's when a corridor improvement plan will be implemented by the county. Beginning on June 1, county code enforcement teams will be performing inspections of properties along the U.S. 1 corridor to make sure that each one is in compliance with county regulations.
The code enforcement members will be inspecting properties for a number of items, including having flags, pennant and banners without a temporary special event permit. The only current exemption is that up to 10 American flags are allowed.
Other items the code enforcement teams will be looking for include parking vehicles within landscaped areas, parking vehicles in the right of way, any amount or trash or debris and a property containing high grass and weeds.
Property owners do not need to be present during the inspections.
For any questions, call the St. Lucie County code enforcement department at (772) 462-1571.
