Code Enforcement

I'm teaching a studio class this quarter on Code Enforcement in the district surrounding the University.

I'm looking for cities that have ordinances that address common university area problems such as:

Parking on Front Lawns
Stuffed Furniture on front Porches

I'd like any references you may have to your city's ordinances on these issues or other university area issues.

I don't have any specific information, but the May 2002 Zoning News was dedicated to "Coping With Colleges," so you may want to check that out.

Both are pretty thorough in dealing with the crazies in college towns. I remember we got fined for the letters on our frat house being too big....commie planners.

Contact the Village of Potsdam, NY Planning & Development Office at (315) 265-1670. (Home to SUNY Potsdam and Clarkson Unviersity)

They've addressed both issues in their local codes, and aggressively enforce them as quality of life issues.
