If for any reason you disagree with a code interpretation, want some confirmation or to voice a concern, just ask for a second opinion.
The "Guaranteed Second Opinion" symbol means the City of San Diego Development Services Department is dedicated to meeting your customer service needs. Environmental, engineering, planning, and building regulations today are more complex than ever. The resulting complex plans and construction require more judgment and interpretation than ever before - by both the applicant and the city staff - to ensure drawings and actual work comply with state and local codes. Customers are free at any time to ask for another interpretation of those codes from a supervisor, senior staff member, or project manager. Staff welcomes the opportunity to seek additional clarification.
If you disagree with the interpretation you received, staff will request a second opinion from their supervisor or you can simply request a second opinion.
Please reference Information Bulletin 610 regarding Project Issue Resolution services.
