(a) The Chief Data Officer (CDO) shall develop a pilot program for expanding notice of significant projects and permitting decisions for the convenience of the general public and to facilitate Board oversight. This program will supplement, rather than replace, other official notice requirements.
(b) The program shall consist of a system through which the City sends, by e-mail or other electronic means and on a periodic basis, information regarding City projects and permitting decisions to members of the public who sign up for the service, and a website where members of the public may find information from responsible City departments regarding City projects and permitting decisions for a particular supervisorial district.
(c) The target date for starting the pilot program is 12 months after the acquisition of project resources by the CDO.
(d) The program initially shall cover significant projects and permitting decisions in the areas of:
(1) Construction and infrastructure repair work;
(2) Public health and safety services and facilities; and,
(e) The program shall not include notices by the Planning Department regarding the following categories of projects and permitting decisions: Environmental Review, Discretionary Review, Conditional Use, Planning Code Section 311 ("Residential Permit Review Procedures for RH, RM, and RTO Districts"), and Planning Code Section 312 ("Permit Review Procedures for All NC, RED, and Eastern Neighborhoods Mixed Use Districts").
(f) All City officers and agencies shall cooperate with the CDO in the development and implementation of the program. The CDO may adopt rules and regulations to implement this Section 1.63, including, but not limited to, processes and guidelines for City departments to provide requested information in a compatible format and on a regular schedule to the CDO. The CDO may, in his or her discretion, excuse a City department from participation in the pilot program, in whole or in part, where the CDO determines that it is not currently feasible to provide the department's notices in machine-readable data formats on a regular basis.
