Neighborhood Services


The Town Council formed the Neighborhood Services Department in 2009 to meet the needs of the community in terms of infrastructure and appearance. Our Special Projects Team (SPT) conducts town-wide cleanup efforts, which will consist of removing overgrowth, mowing, edging, and trimming of all right a ways, and replacing street and traffic signs.

The Town has adopted the 2009 International Property Maintenance Code in 2012 with Ordinance 2012-002. The has also modified the fees and fines for Code Enforcement violations in January 2013 with Ordinance 2012-006.


Our Code Enforcement Division conducts exterior residential and business inspections. View Common Code Enforcement Issues for the Town of Capitol Heights on the Property Standards page.

Code Enforcement Notices

Notices from code enforcement are meant to provide homeowners with an opportunity to improve their property in a timely manner. These are reminders for issues that are covered under the Town’s Code, however, attention needs to be paid to these notices, because they can turn into future citations. For more information regarding code enforcement contact the Town at 301-420-3000.

Neighborhood Service Department Community Meetings

Citizens are encouraged to participate in monthly Neighborhood Service Department community meetings at the Town Hall at 7 p.m. on the 3rd Tuesdays of each month. Councilmember Akers serves as the committee chair for our Neighborhood Services Committee.
