Appeals

Interpretations by the Zoning Administrator are issued for certain sections of the San Francisco Planning Code and should be applied to specific factual situations. If you have substantial reason to believe that there is an error in the interpretation of the provision of the Planning Code, or abuse of discretion on the part of the Zoning Administrator in a determination listed below, you have fifteen (15) days from the date of the interpretation to appeal the determination to the Board of Appeals.

For information regarding the appeals process, please contact:
