The City of San Diego is committed to serving the public and improving how information is provided to its citizens. For the first time, the City of San Diego’s Development Services Department (DSD) is releasing to the public its Project Tracking System (PTS) in web-based format.
PTS is an in-house software system used to both manage and track the City’s land development permit processing functions. OpenDSD will now provide online access to permit data through internet browsers as well as to those who wish to query the permit data with software.
[Information can be searched by data back to 2003; or by map for current or recent activity.]
The scope of the data published exceeds that of any other city. The breadth of the release is intended to cover land development permit application, issuance, inspection, and completion.
A variety of information including timelines, scope, decisions, and costs will all be provided online. In addition, Code Enforcement case activity is also provided. This data includes permit information dating back to 2003 as well as code enforcement cases since 2011. Personal identifying information such as phone numbers about individuals doing business with the City is not provided.
