Expedite Program

Project Name
Project Address:
DSD Project Number:
If you are providing affordable housing (in-fill development) and/or sustainable buildings, the Development
Services Department offers an expedited permit processing service. The Expedite Program utilizes a streamlined
land development review process that is faster than the standard permit process. The program goal is to cut the
permit process time in half and thereby provide direct financial savings for affordable housing and sustainable
building developers. This expedite program is optional, and participation in the program requires supplemental
fees for discretionary approvals (see
Information Bulletin
503)
Section 1: Eligibility Requirements
If you wish to enter into the Expedite Program, your project must meet the affordable in-fill and/or sustainable
eligibility requirements of
San Diego Municipal Code (SDMC)

E. Mixed-Use Development: Projects that combine residential with other land uses where at least 50

Section 3: For-Rent Affordable Housing Projects
I acknowledge that I am voluntarily providing on-site affordable rental units, and that to ensure compliance with
the Costa-Hawkins Rental Housing Act, I am requesting that the City provide specific regulatory incentives and/or
concessions that result in identifiable, financially sufficient, and actual project cost reductions, including but not
limited to permit processing provided through the Affordable/In-Fill Housing and Sustainable Buildings Expedite
Program and/or the approval of a deviation, waiver or reduction of development standards or regulations
(“development incentives”). I further acknowledge that I will enter into a contract with a public entity, which may
include the San Diego Housing Commission, providing for affordable units as referenced above. The contract shall
comply with the requirements of the Inclusionary Implementing and Monitoring Procedures Manual. I agree to
execute the public agency contract in consideration of my receipt of development incentives.
