Code Enforcement

The Go Request app lets you easily report any code violation (health, safety, property, animal, and quality of life) to City officials. You can upload a description as well as pinpoint it on a map. You may still report code violations by calling 278-3316. FOR EMERGENCIES, INCLUDING GAS LEAKS, PLEASE CALL THE POLICE DEPARTMENT.

Planning and Development Boards
Volunteer boards are an essential part of Planning and Development. The Planning Commission and Board of Adjustment make decisions regarding land use. Building Standards reviews unsafe structures. The Historic Preservation Board approves changes to the exterior of buildings in our historic district. If any of this sounds interesting to you, fill out a volunteer application and we will give you a call when we have an opening. Make a difference in Uvalde, volunteer! Volunteer Application
