Foreclosed/Abandoned Property - Smoking Ordinance - Planning & Special Projects Department Page

Workflow for Code Enforcement process

The Neighborhood Services division of the Development Services Department is responsible for enforcing various City Ordinances related to maintenance and use of property.  Through a cooperative effort of the City Council and the citizens of Lee's Summit, we can maintain property values and create a better quality of life within our community.

Maintenance and use of private property with the City of Lee's Summit is generally guided by three City Ordinances: 

  • City Code of Ordinances (Chapter 16 Property Maintenance)
    • Tall grass and weeds in excess of 10"
    • Improper storage of trash and debris
    • Parking in the grass
    • Improper storage of unlicensed and inoperable vehicles

If you think there might be a code violation in your neighborhood, contact the Neighborhood Services division to investigate. Citizens can call 816-969-1200 or Contact us on-line and select “Neighborhood Services” as the Department/Contact.
