County Council public hearing and presentation for Chapter 18 Nuisance Code update Nov. 29
Posted on 11/21/2022

The Los Alamos County Council will hear a request from the Los Alamos County Community Development Department (CDD) to amend the Chapter 18 Nuisance Code, with a comprehensive update through Ordinance 02-334 to be considered for adoption, during a public hearing and presentation on Tuesday, Nov. 29, 2022, at 6:00 p.m. Interested community members can attend in person at 1000 Central Ave., Los Alamos in the County Council Chambers, or join remotely using the following Zoom link.  

The nuisance code specifically addresses weeds, outdoor storage, dilapidation, refuse and rubbish, and other threats to public health, safety, and welfare on private property. This project is the first comprehensive update to this section within the Los Alamos Code of Ordinance Chapter 18 Environment Article II. The intent is to:

-      Clarify the existing standards,

-      Improve overall organization and structure of the existing code,

-      Prioritize and classify nuisances,

-      Clarify code enforcement goals of Los Alamos County, and

-      Align code enforcement procedures to County priorities.

CDD and Dekker/Perich/Sabatini (DPS) have incorporated into the final version public feedback received during the review periods and input from the Community Development Advisory Board representatives and councilors.

The public may provide up to three (3) minutes of public comment during the public hearing. The final document is available for review online on the County Clerk’s Proposed Ordinances page. Additional information about Chapter 18 is available online at
