Encyclopedia > Livability Court

A Livability Court is a municipal court (or court of limited jurisdiction) focused on cases involving non-compliance with codes and standards about housing, waste, environment, noise, animal control, zoning, traffic and tourism. The first Livability Court in the United States was created in Charleston, South Carolina [1] (http://www.ci.charleston.sc.us/pr_livability_court.html).

Court officials say the caseload remains high in part because the court now handles a wider range of offenses than it did initially.
In Philadelphia, the court's basic costs are picked up by the city, but private foundations have provided $2 million needed to pay for its medical staff and counselors for the court's two-year test period.
