Property Preservation Commission
Updated May 5, 2016
The Property Preservation Commission consists of five members appointed by the members of the City Council. The Commission considers matters related to the maintenance and appearance of property. The Commission holds public hearings to determine if a property is in violation of the City's property maintenance code and to consider residents' requests to remove parkway trees. The Commission serves as an advisory body to the City Council when establishing health and safety policies related to property maintenance.
The Commission oversees the annual beautification program known as City Wide Pride. The City Wide Pride program encourages property maintenance through positive reinforcement by giving awards to property owners who maintain their property exceptionally well. The Commission members are Philip H. Hickok (Chairperson), John K. Dawson (Vice-Chairperson), Waldo Arballo, Levi A. Javier and Chan-Yong Kim.
Regular meetings of the Property Preservation Commission are held at 7 p.m. on the last Tuesday of the months January through November at the City Hall Council Chambers.
