Springfield Township Property Maintenance Code

Promoting Safety & Quality of Life

The Springfield Township's Property Maintenance Code is in place is to ensure public health, safety, and welfare for those who live in, work in, and visit Springfield Township. The Property Maintenance Code applies to all existing structures and premises, and enforces exterior maintenance regulations on property owners. The Code is enforced by the Administration Department and Code Enforcement Division of the Fire Department.

Submitting a Complaint / Concern

Common issues that are brought to our attention are tall grass and weeds, inoperable vehicles, hanging gutters, unsanitary  and unmaintained swimming pools, general property disrepair, and unconfined garbage or debris. A complaint made to the township will initiate a code enforcement officer to inspect the property, which may result in the issuance of a violation notice. Complaints may be made by calling 513-522-1410, completing an online complaint / concern form, or by submitting an email.

Failure to correct the violation within a timely manner can result in the issuance of a civil citation or having the issue abated by the township and any costs associated with such abatement action would be placed on the tax duplicate as a lien against the property. Please note that our enforcement of property maintenance issues only involves private property. Please refer inquiries about issues within the public right of way to the appropriate departments listed below.
