Enhanced Exterior Maintenance Inspection Program
Orange Village is conducting the exterior maintenance
In response to recent survey
results indicating a growing concern for the decline in
property upkeep throughout the community, the building
department will be stepping up its property maintenance enforcement.
and Zoning Inspector will drive through the community and evaluate the condition
of properties via a site inspection from the street. Exterior areas of all properties shall be kept free of any
objects, materials or conditions which may create a health, accident or fire hazard or adversely affect the
value of surrounding properties: including but not limited to such objects, materials or conditions as peeling
paint or bare untreated exterior surfaces, broken or dilapidated fences, decks, porches and accessory
structures, missing or broken windows and doors, unlicensed or immovable vehicles, and/or collections
of junk, rubbish or debris outside dwelling structures. If the inspector sees any violations of the Village’s
Ordinances, he will document the violation then prepare a first notice letter to the property owner. Property
owners will then have ten (10) days to contact Tom Shields, our Housing and Zoning Inspector, with either a
plan to correct the violation(s) or with a statement of intent to appeal the violation(s). If the property owner
does not contact the Housing and Zoning Inspector within the designated time specified in the letter, they
will be expected to correct the listed violation(s) within thirty (30) days of the date of the initial violation letter.
A follow-up inspection will be made after 30 days. If the owner has corrected the violation(s), the file will
be closed. However, if the violation(s) still exists the Inspector will generate a second and final violation
ticket. If the property owner refuses to cooperate with the Housing and Zoning inspector (or the Building
Commissioner) and does not file an appeal, the matter will be turned over to the Village Prosecutor to
proceed with legal action. A list of the violations, including the ordinance number
that the inspector will be looking at can be found on the Village Website under
the building tab.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Housing and Zoning
Inspector Tom Shields at 440-287-5134 or Building Commissioner Dave Strichko
