Draft Chapter 18 Nuisance Code Update Available for Review

Updated: Jul 28

The Los Alamos County Community Development Department (CDD) and its contractor Dekker/Perich/Sabatini (DPS) have completed a final draft revision of the nuisance code for public review.


The nuisance code specifically addresses weeds, outdoor storage, dilapidation, refuse and rubbish, and other threats to public health, safety, and welfare on private property. This project is the first comprehensive update to this section within the Los Alamos Code of Ordinance Chapter 18 Environment Article II. The intent is to:

Clarify the existing standards,

  • Improve overall organization and structure of the existing code,

  • Prioritize and classify nuisances,

  • Clarify code enforcement goals of Los Alamos County, and

  • Align code enforcement procedures to County priorities

Members of the public may review and email additional comments by August 23 to Jessica Lawlis at JessicaL@dpsdesign.org or Sobia Sayeda at Sobia.Sayeda@lacnm.us. CDD staff will also present the final draft to the Los Alamos County Community Development Advisory Board (CDAB) on August 15.

The redline version that tracks changes is available for review below.
