Sturgis is a vibrant and growing community of nearly 7,000 progressive citizens located at the entrance to the Beautiful Black Hills. It is the mission of the Code Enforcement Office and the Community Development Department to work in partnership with the people of Sturgis to maintain a safe and desirable living and working environment. We will help maintain or improve the quality of your community in three ways:
1. We will administer a fair and unbiased enforcement program to correct violations of
municipal codes and land use requirements.
2. We will work with residents, neighborhood association, public service agencies and
other City departments to:
a. Empower community self-help programs
