Striving to Enhance the Quality of Life for Brentwood Residents and Businesses
The Community Enrichment Program helps keep the City of Brentwood a healthy, safe, clean, and attractive place to live and work. City staff work with residents to take an active role in improving and maintaining the quality of life of their neighborhoods, as well as maintaining property values.

Our neighborhoods are the environment in which we live and raise our families. Blight and nuisances can devalue, detract and degrade the quality of any neighborhood. Recognizing the importance of protecting the home environment, the City has adopted municipal codes that govern the use and maintenance of private property. See Common Concerns - Residential Flier.
While many of the City's codes deal with private residential property, there are codes that regulate the condition of commercial properties as well.
Your valuable tax dollars are at work, and we want to expend our resources appropriately and efficiently. There are some neighborhood concerns that do not fall under our responsibility. In general, we can act on behalf of the public at large - we cannot take action on behalf of one citizen against another. Also we cannot enforce CC&R's (Covenants, Codes & Restrictions). CC&R's should be enforced through a neighborhood homeowners association, or via mediation. This includes trees on private property or common fences between neighbors.
Take a look at your property. Make sure you don't have any hazards or potential violations such as: weeds, garbage, graffiti, litter, junk, debris, illegal signs, discarded furniture, discarded appliances and inoperative vehicles. Boats, trailers or other recreational vehicles should be stored behind a 6 foot solid fence, out of public view.
