The City of Lubbock will check a neighborhood for code violations.

The Lubbock Police Department’s Codes Administration section will conduct a field exercise in the South Overton Neighborhood on Thursday, March 21st.

Codes inspectors will be in the area searching for violations such as junked vehicles, nuisance weeds and rubbish, substandard housing, and zoning.

Inspectors will be in the area bordered by University Avenue on the east and Interstate 27 on the west; Broadway Avenue on the North and 19th Street on the south from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.

A field office will be set up in the First Baptist Church parking lot in the 2100 block of 13th Street to provide information regarding Code Administration activities. A roll off container will also be available at the field office for citizens to dispose of bulky items.

Code inspectors will talk to the public in the area to provide education regarding these types of violations, citing violations, and possibly abating violations as well.
