Mission Statement

It is the mission of the Rockland Codes Initiative to fairly and impartially enforce codes and other ordinances of the County of Rockland. Our goal is to ensure compliance for a safe and desirable living and working environment, thereby protecting health, property and the quality of life for all Rockland County residents.

What is the Rockland Codes Initiative?

Have a complaint?

If you know of a property that you would like the department of Health to investigate, please use our RCI Complaint form.

Preserving the quality and character of Rockland County's neighborhoods is a top priority for the Day Administration. As a result, County Executive Ed Day launched the Rockland Codes Initiative in April, 2015 to oversee the Unified Neighborhood Inspection Team. (UNIT)

The RCI is an innovative approach to combating health, housing and fire safety issues. The UNIT is responsible for identifying various neighborhood concerns ranging from illegal apartments, sanitary code violations and overcrowded, unsafe living conditions. Complaints are investigated by the Rockland County Department of Health.

The UNIT focuses on blight remediation, code compliance, public health and safety issues and strives to enhance Rockland County's position as a premier place to live, work and raise a family.  Skilled inspectors respond to complaints submitted to the Health Department and work diligently with the Board of Health to resolve the issues. Remedies may include substantial fines for offending property owners, referrals to departments and agencies within local government and assisting residents in need of housing and/or health guidance.

It is routine for the Department of Health to provide timely updates to residents that notify the UNIT of local health, housing, zoning and fire concerns. We appreciate your support in helping to maintain and improve the quality of life for all residents of Rockland County.
