Zoning and Compliance

Planners in the Zoning Administration and Compliance Division maintain and improve the quality of San Francisco's neighborhoods by ensuring compliance with the San Francisco Planning Code.

The Zoning Administrator manages the Zoning and Compliance Teams and project-related activities within the department such as the Transportation Demand Management Program and the Office Allocation Annual Limitation Program.

The Code Enforcement Team under this division responds to complaints of possible Planning Code violations and initiates fair and unbiased enforcement action to correct violations and maintain neighborhood livability.

The Office of Short-Term Rentals (OSTR) works with the residents of San Francisco to ensure that short-term rental activity respects neighborhood character, preserves housing supply, and complies with the City’s rules.
