The City of Killeen is currently in Zone 3 of its Clean ’17 program. Zone 3 is the area bounded by the Fort Hood boundary on the north, Rancier Avenue on the south, WS Young Drive on the west and the city limit on the east.
Clean ’17 is a program to beautify our community by concentrating code enforcement efforts by area. The city has been divided into nine zones, and officers are canvassing each zone for approximately 30 days to identify code violations at businesses, residences and lots. The goal is to gain compliance with City codes by notifying property owners and tenants of violations and procedures and resources for correcting them.
Codes are enacted to provide for the health and safety of the public and to protect private property value. Common residential code violations are junk vehicles, high grass, care of premises, trash and graffiti. Commercial code violations include the same categories along with property maintenance, signage, parking lots and dumpster areas.
Residents are encouraged to learn more about City codes at KilleenTexas.gov and to abate issues that exist on their properties prior to zone enforcement. Violations can be reported online or by calling 501-7608.
Zone 2 Update:
Work in Zone 2, the area between Interstate 14 and Veterans Memorial Boulevard and west of WS Young Drive, began in February and is substantially complete. Officers performed 970 inspections and identified 903 violations, most of which were care of premises and high grass and weeds. Voluntary compliance by property owners was very high, so only 22 citations were issued.
