• Code Compliance Neighborhood Inspection Program – The Temple Terrace Code Compliance Department conducts annual “neighborhood sweeps,” temporarily shifting code enforcement officers from their assigned zones to focus on specific areas of the city. The central southeast neighborhoods (Zone 9) including the communities bounded by Druid Hills Road to the north, Temple Terrace Highway to the south, N. 78th Street to the west and Morris Bridge Road to the east have been selected for inspection, beginning Thursday, August 22 and continuing through the end of the week. These inspections will take place between 8am and 5pm. Code enforcement officers will verify that dwellings, accessory structures, yards and vehicles are consistent with City Code standards. Officers will not walk onto property to inspect it. If a violation is observed from the right-of-way, a courtesy notice will be left at the residence identifying the item(s) of concern.
• Boat Ramp Closed – The Rotary Park Boat Ramp off Fowler Ave is closed due to high water and swift currents until further notice. The dock currently is under about a foot of water and is very dangerous to be on. The Riverhills Boat Ramp is open and fully operational.
