“” is a non-profit news-gathering organization in San Diego.  They have put together data regarding complaints and resolutions into a searchable database found here.


This database includes all complaints filed with San Diego’s Development Services Department’s Code Enforcement Division since Jan. 1, 2014 through November 2016. You can search by type of complaint, address or just browse the map. A caveat: not every complaint was found to be valid.

It’s an interesting tool and interesting to see the number and locations of complaints.
