As proposed by Supervisor Ronen, individuals, agents and entities that have a history of circumventing and abusing the City’s permitting process – such as working without a permit; misrepresenting the existing conditions of a property in order to facilitate the approval of a permit; or working beyond the scope of a permit that has been secured – would be placed on an “Expanded Compliance Control List.”
Three or more permit infractions within a rolling period of 18-months would land an individual, agent or entity on The List for an initial period of 5 years, with a 5-year extension upon any subsequent violations.
Listees would be reported to all applicable licensing boards or regulatory agencies. And if a project or job is either sponsored by or associated with an individual, agent or entity on the Expanded Compliance Control List, any requested permits would be subject to additional review and inspection, when requested, when approved and after the job is completed.
We’ll keep you posted and plugged-in.
