Which City Ordinances apply to property use and maintenance?
The Dublin Zoning Ordinance and the Property Maintenance Ordinance apply to property use and maintenance.

The Dublin Zoning Ordinance addresses a wide range of topics related to the permissible use of private property, including: permitted and conditional land uses within established zoning districts, business signs, vehicle and RV parking and storage, residential yard and building setbacks, building and fence heights, home businesses (a.k.a. Home Occupations) and accessory storage sheds or other structures in yards.

The Property Maintenance Ordinance addresses nuisance type issues that are visible from a public street and have usually gone on for some time such as: failure to dispose of trash in a timely manner, household items stored outdoors, garbage and debris accumulation, hazardous and/or unsightly conditions on private property, including unkempt properties.
