Hampton Codes Academy

Hampton’s Codes Academy is a free, six-week education series designed to give citizens and community leaders a better understanding of the community development process and code enforcement activities.

Participants in the Codes Academy will spend two hours a week exploring everything from the goal of codes enforcement and limits of government enforcement power, importance of zoning, when use permits are needed, various agencies and roles, and the process for "how stuff gets built."

At the end of the academy, participants will be able to help neighbors understand the codes process, improve their community through competency in codes and permits, and accurately identify and report property maintenance and zoning violations.

Check back in January for information and class schedule for the next Codes Academy.

For additional information on the Codes Academy, please call Marcie Spragan or Joe Andrews at 757-727-6140.
