All City Offices Will Be Closed on Monday, Dec 26 and Monday, Jan 2

SAN DIEGO - All City of San Diego offices will be closed on Monday, December 26, and Monday, January 2nd, in observance of Christmas and New Year's Day.

In an effort to reduce operating costs the City has adopted a furlough program during the holidays. City employees may take time off without pay on "furlough days," Tuesday, Dec. 27 - Friday, Dec. 30. This reduces staffing levels in a number of departments. Citizens are urged to call or visit City offices before or after the holiday period to transact business or inquire about specific services. Other holiday schedule changes for the City are as follows:

  • Community Service Centers: The San Ysidro Community Service Center will be open Tuesday, Dec. 27 through Thursday, Dec. 29 from 8 am to 1 pm & 2:30 to 5:00 pm and Friday, Dec. 30 from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm. All of the remaining Service Centers will be closed.

  • Development Services Permits and Plan Review: The downtown Development Services Center will be closed to the public from Dec. 26 to Jan 2.

    • On Dec. 27-30, limited permit issuance and inspections will be available from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Development Services Department's Inspection Services Division, 9601 Ridgehaven Court, Suite 220, 858-492-5070.

    • Inspections are scheduled through the InspectionLine Service at 858-581-7111.

    • Permits requested through the PermitFax or online SimplEpermit will be issued from Dec. 27-30, however there may be a delay.

    • Customers anticipating a need for construction plan review, permits or a review of property construction records or zoning between Dec. 23 and Jan. 2 are urged to complete the process before Dec. 23. This especially applies to customers who need records or permits to complete real estate transactions or other work by Dec. 30, 2005.
