VACANT COMMERCIAL PROPERTY OR STOREFRONT INSTRUCTIONS

The La Mirada Municipal Code requires registration of commercial properties or storefronts that are vacant or abandoned.

The City works to identify owners of vacant properties to ensure these properties are being maintained. A registration is valid for one (1) year from the date the registration form is received by the City.  Subsequent registrations are due annually for as long as the property or storefront is vacant.

Maintenance Requirements:

  • All vacant or abandoned commercial properties and storefronts shall be kept free of weeds, dry brush, dead vegetation, trash, junk, debris, building materials, any accumulation of papers or documents, except those required by federal, state or local law, and discarded personal items including, but not limited to, furniture, clothing, appliances, printed materials or any other items that contribute to the appearance that the property is abandoned or that constitute evidence of vacancy.
  • All vacant or abandoned commercial properties and storefronts shall be maintained free of graffiti, tagging or similar markings by removing or painting over the graffiti with an exterior grade paint that matches the color of the exterior of the structure. The owner shall, within twenty-four (24) hours of being notified or becoming aware of the presence of graffiti, cause the same to be removed or painted over, as described above.
  • Visible front and side yards shall be landscaped and maintained according to the standards set forth in the La Mirada Municipal Code and applicable land use approvals for the property in question. Maintenance required for visible front and side yards also includes, but is not limited to, regular watering, cutting, pruning and mowing of landscape and removal of all trimmings resulting therefrom.
  • The property shall be posted with the name and twenty-four (24) hour contact phone number of the local property management company or responsible party in a manner sufficient to allow an individual to contact and notify the local property management company or responsible party of any problems or concerns regarding the property. The posting shall be placed on the interior of a first floor window facing the street to the front of the property so that it is visible from the street, or secured to the exterior of the building or structure facing the street to the front of the property so that it is visible from the street.
