Why can't I do something now that my neighbor did three years ago?
The planning staff, on behalf of the City of Claremore, is responsible for upholding the current Codes and Ordinances fairly and evenly among all citizens. Codes and Ordinances must change as our City continues to grow and as state and federal laws mandate. Often, any conditions that existed before the passage of a new ordinance are legal non-conforming uses, commonly referred to as “grandfathered” uses. Alternatively, your neighbor may not have followed the proper permitting procedures leaving staff unaware of a violation. If that is the case, the Claremore Code Enforcement can address this problem.
