About Us

"To protect the quality of life, property values and the environment for residents and businesses of South San Francisco. This will be accomplished by insuring compliance with policies, codes, rules, regulations, and permits in a proper, timely fashion within the limits of the law."

This is the mission statement of the  Community Preservation Task Force (CPTF), which was formed in 2002 to bring together different City  and County Departments, local businesses, neighborhood groups and community members to identify priorities and better coordinate the use of resources on specific code enforcement problems/issues.

The Task Force was formed in response to a variety of citizen concerns regarding litter, illegal parking, property maintenance issues, etc.  The Fire Department was chosen as the lead department on this project because of its responsibilities for Code Enforcement. 

The goals of the Community Preservation Task Force are:
  • Identify specific code enforcement problems/issues
  • Develop specific strategies
  • Develop code enforcement action plans
  • Develop key performance indicators
  • Provide a coordination/focal point
  • Provide an opportunity to develop community based programs/activities
  • Report on Task Force success
Citizen Action Team
The Citizen Action Team (CAT) is a sub-committee of CPTF volunteers who dedicate time each week to assist the Code Enforcement Department in obtaining compliance to common neighborhood violations. Contact CPTF to learn more about CAT volunteer opportunities.
