Home Maintenance Tips

The Village of Skokie encourages its citizens to maintain high standards of property maintenance. The Property Standards staff works directly with the community to assist with any concerns citizens may have pertaining to property maintenance.


When assessing conditions in your neighborhood that need to be addressed, use the checklist below as a guide for identifying some of the more common violations:
  • Abandoned Buildings
  • Accumulation of Storage and Debris
  • Boat, RV, and Trailer Storage
  • Broken Windows, Doors, or Fences
  • Condition of Accessory Structures
  • Graffiti
  • Inoperable or Abandoned Vehicles
  • Peeling Paint
  • Possible Fire Hazards
  • Weeds


If a violation is cited, a notice is sent to the property owner identifying the code violations. Failure to correct the problems within the required time frame may result in the issuance of citations.
