The City of San Diego's Hearing Officers are designated by the City Manager and continue under the new Strong Mayor form of government. The Hearing Officers preside over public hearings and act on items such as permits, maps, variances and other matters in accordance with the San Diego Municipal Code.
Hearing Officers are also subject to due process requirements and must conduct hearings in an impartial manner. Therefore, it is inappropriate to contact Hearing Officers to discuss any item that will come before them in a hearing. If such contact occurs, Hearing Officers may be subject to recusal from that item.
