City Resources to Address Quality of Life Issues

City’s Neighborhood Quality of Life has compiled a list of resources to help address the quality of life issues in College Park. Please see them here:

The link above will direct users to the city’s online reporting system. Hosts of reporting categories are available here and “tickets” can be reported anonymously.
–       Noise Hotline
Unless it is for the purpose of necessary property maintenance during the day, it is unlawful for any owner or occupant of real property located within the City to make or generate loud or raucous sound on said property, or to permit any loud or raucous sound to be made or generated on said property, so as to cause unreasonable annoyance or disturbance to others living or located nearby.  Allowable noise is limited to 65 decibels during the day and 55 decibels at night.  A code enforcement officer is on duty late spring and early fall on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 6:00 p.m. to 4:00 a.m.  If you have a noise complaint at any time, you may call the Code/Noise Enforcement Hotline at 240-487-3588.
Provides $5,000 grants to households/individuals to purchase properties within the corporate limits of College Park. Applies to rental homes (2+ years) converting to owner occupied by way of sale. Applicants must agree to live in the property as their primary residence for a minimum of 5 years.
–       College Park Day and Good Neighbor Day
These events, sponsored by the city and university, bring together community members to share city services, highlight local businesses, provide opportunities to laugh and dance together, and bring citizens together in the spirit of community service.
–       Code of Student Conduct
Accountability is key. Students behaving in an inappropriate or illegal manner throughout our city and state can be reported to the Code of Student Conduct office for disciplinary action. The primary purpose for the imposition of discipline in the University setting is to protect the campus community. Consistent with that purpose, reasonable efforts will also be made to foster the personal and social development of those students who are held accountable for violations of University regulations. Sanctions can vary from a reprimand to expulsion.
Initiated this Fall, this certification program sets a baseline for educating city landlords on best practices and compliance with city, county, and state regulations.
