Volunteer Program
Purpose
The City of Daytona Beach is proud to announce the adoption of the Code Enforcement Volunteer Program. Through this program, residents work together with the city's staff to preserve and improve residential neighborhoods and make Daytona Beach a better place to live and work.

Since volunteers are the foundation of this program, concerned citizens will help protect the quality of life in Daytona Beach by assisting our code enforcement efforts. In this way we can better address the needs of all residents. Please help us keep our community beautiful by serving as a volunteer.

Program Description

Code enforcement volunteers assume tasks similar to those performed by Code Enforcement personnel. As a volunteer, you will help us protect the value of homes and quality of life in neighborhoods by inspecting neighborhoods primarily on weekends. You will not be asked to inspect your own neighborhood and no interior inspections will be required.

You will help us uphold community standards in the following areas:
  • Auto repair and unpermitted business activities in neighborhoods
  • Commercial and oversize vehicles that are parked in residential neighborhoods
  • Excessive accumulations of trash in visible areas
  • Excessive garage sales
  • Parked vehicles on lawn areas
  • Weeds or overgrown vegetation, which are both health and fire hazards

In addition, you may assist in removing illegal signs (garage sales, concerts / shows, real estate and commercial advertising) from public right-of-ways and monitoring specific cases in order to speed the rate of compliance.

Program Benefits
As a code enforcement volunteer you will benefit from a sense of pride and accomplishment that comes from participating in a program that keeps Daytona Beach beautiful. Most importantly, our community will benefit from your efforts. Neighborhood preservation is a key factor in protecting home values and enhancing the quality of life in Daytona Beach.
