We enforce the provisions of the Village of Weston Zoning Code (Chapter 94 of the Municipal Code). Zoning complaints relate to illegal land use issues, including (but not limited to) front yard parking on grass, contractor's yards in residential districts and illegal commercial uses in residential districts.
Filing a Nuisance or Zoning Code Complaint
When filing a complaint, please provide as much information as possible, including the address, suspected illegal use of the property and what you specifically are looking for us to address on the property. Please note that due to the number of complaints received per year, anonymous complaints are not investigated as priority items by enforcement staff. Complainant assistance may be necessary to gain additional information or if witnesses are needed for cases which are prosecuted in Municipal or Circuit Courts.
You can report complaints by using the Village's online Service Request System, sending a written letter, or sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you provide a written letter or email, we would appreciate you printing out and including the completed Complaint Form. It includes all the necessary information staff will need to process your complaint and resolve your issues.
