Hell = Frozen Over: City Permit Process "Streamlined"

New, 1 comment

San Francisco's Building Inspection Commission has approved the Final Report on the Department of Building (DBI) Inspection's Business Process Reengineering (BPR). Now that we have the acronyms out of the way, let's figure out what that means. Says DBI Director Isam Hasenin: "[The plan] will create a streamlined, efficient review and approvals’ process that delivers high quality, predictable and responsive customer services." Among the 200 or so pipe dreams "key recommendations" made for the plan are elimination of redundant or unnecessary reviews and regulations, and the development of a city-wide automated permit tracking system. Archiplebes, developers, and average joe home renovators alike: x-mess has arrived early. [SF Sentinal]
