The Non-Residential Buildings and Structures section of the City's Minimum Housing Code, Chapter 11, outlines minimum standards and enforcement for maintenance, sanitation and safety of non-residential/commercial buildings and structures located within City limits.

Commonly referred to as the "Good Repair Ordinance," the ordinance adopts the International Property Maintenance Code as a guideline for minimum standards for non-residential buildings and structures. It also defines the investigation and enforcement process for bringing structures into compliance. 

City Code Compliance Inspectors check structures to ensure they meet the minimum standards outlined in the Good Repair Ordinance.

There are more than 15,000 non-residential building/structure addresses in Greensboro city limits.
