Property Standards Earns Nation’s 1st Code Accreditation

Scott Neumeyer

Property Standards Division receives American Association of Code Enforcement (AACE) accreditation. This is the first nationally recognized accreditation program solely for code enforcement agencies.

Inspection Services Supervisor Scott Neumeyer worked closely with AACE on developing the program. According to Property Standards Manager Scott Lussier, “Scott (Neumeyer) actually volunteered to take on the task of having the department accredited. It’s been a long term goal to create a uniformed level of professionalism and service. After researching the certifications currently available, he came up with the idea of developing an accreditation program for our national code enforcement association.”

Property Standards teamNeumeyer is also responsible for submitting the City’s application which resulted in Plano being the first city in the nation to earn this designation, the Standards of Accreditation. The Standards identify how an agency operates under seven main criteria involving everything from jurisdictional information, staffing, policies and procedures, and reporting – over 60 standards fall under the main criteria.

Property Standards Supervisors Christopher Smith, Jamal Murray and Sheryl Wilson along with Lussier, all assisted with the application process.

Lussier added, “Our department is very honored to have assisted in the development of the AACE Accreditation Program and to have been the first recipient accreditation from AACE. This shows the Property Standards Division of the Neighborhood Services meets national professional standards and is competent to provide public safety services to our community.”

The American Association of Code Enforcement asked Scott Neumeyer to serve on the Accreditation Committee to review future accreditation applications. The certification is valid for 5 years.
