The County Code applies to all areas of Prince George’s County with the exceptions of properties located within the municipal boundaries of the cities of Bowie and Hyattsville. Contact the city office if there are concerns in either municipality. 

County inspectors conduct periodic on-site inspections and respond to complaints about existing structures to ensure compliance.
