What is the Neighborhood Improvement Program (NIP)?
NIP is a program where inspectors scour neighborhoods looking for properties that are not properly maintained in accordance with township ordinances.
When a property maintenance concern is observed, the issue is addressed with the resident. A violation is not issued at this time.
In addition to improving the condition and appearance of Hamilton's neighborhoods, this program helps to mitigate complaints throughout the year and gives residents the opportunity to resolve the property maintenance concern without being issued a violation.
NIP begins in late March to early April depending on weather conditions. The program runs daily for at least 45 work days then the inspectors spot check areas when complaints come in.
