Archived San Francisco Municipal Codes and Ordinances

 

Why look at older San Francisco municipal codes and ordinances?  Laws change over time and sometimes an older law may apply to your situation.  Also, since San Francisco has always been on the cutting edge of new legislation, from non-smoking laws to gay marriage, other cities often want to see how San Francisco did it first.  Our historical municipal codes and ordinance collection fulfills specific research needs. Here are a few examples:

  • My home was built in 1907.  What was the building code in San Francisco at the time?
  • I want to see the evolution of laws governing taxicabs in San Francisco.
  • My city is considering legislation banning plastic bags.  Can I see the original San Francisco ordinance on that?

Whether it is looking at local legislation from a specific time or looking at changes in San Francisco City Administration, we have the history you are looking for.
