One of the primary objectives of the City of Garden Grove’s Building Abatement Unit is to bring substandard housing into compliance with State and City codes, to reduce unsafe housing conditions, and to preserve the high quality of life in Garden Grove’s neighborhoods.

To meet this objective, potential code violations are identified on a proactive and reactive basis. Inspections are performed utilizing a variety of enforcement tools to achieve compliance. These tools consist of verbal and written warnings, letter notifications, office conferences, administrative citations, and abatement.
