A Public Project Assessment (PPA) is an optional service for evaluating project feasibility on property owned, leased or maintained by the city. The process assists in determining whether a discretionary permit is required, establishing consistency with existing environmental approvals, or providing a stand-alone environmental determination. A determination will be documented and provided at the completion of the review.
If you are not a City of San Diego department, a Deposit Account/Financially Responsible Party form, DS-3242, will be required to open a deposit account with an initial deposit of $5,000 and applicable closeout fees. For more information, see Public Project Assessment - Information Bulletin 510.
No inspections are required.
No exemptions apply.
Once you receive a confirmation email that will be generated after completing Step 1a, review the OpenDSD User Guide for PTS Permit Online.
You must have a PTS number first (see Step 1a), and you will be required to upload the completed submittal documents from Step 3 at the time of application. Submitting without all the requirements will result in delays.
