A Special Message from Your 2017-2018
CALBO President David Khorram
Knowing how to deal with issues at hand in building & safety operations.

As I was sitting in my office on October 12, it occurred to me that I was dealing with my own fires. Literally as the fires ablaze causing physical damage to property in Northern and Southern California, there were figurative fires affecting the City of Long Beach’s technology contracts and IT services. During this havoc, I took a moment to pause and remind myself to focus on the “big picture.”

As a Building Official and CALBO President, technology has been an intriguing topic. Technology is the second resource that we, as Building Officials, depend on every day.
The result of a recent survey conducted by the CALBO Innovation and Technology Committee indicates that generally eight (8) types of technologies are used within California Building & Safety Departments: (1) permit software, (2) electronic plan check, (3) inspection online, (4) queuing, (5) achieves, (6) financial/cashiering, (7) website, and (8) social media.

Most agencies use all or some combination of the above technologies to conduct daily business. The survey also indicated that only a very small number of agency staff in charge of such technologies are happy with their systems; whereas, the majority feel as if the systems come short of addressing their needs. There are a multitude of reasons behind unsuccessful implementation of technologies; such as, agency staff or departments not knowing or agreeing on one system, public resistance to the use of technology, problems with systematic upgrades, and the shortage of wireless and mobile coverage throughout all areas.

Technology is constantly evolving, and it is drastically changing both our lifestyle and how we work. Additionally, our needs regarding codes, fees, and applications are continuously changing as well. Third, we do not establish, develop, or control systems that we utilize. Furthermore, vendors and software companies often make promises that they fail to deliver. Lastly, the technologies we use are not coordinated or integrated with each other and do not make work easier at building and safety departments.  

With all that in mind, the CALBO Board of Directors established our third goal of the year by promoting innovation and technology and innovation in building and safety departments. In May 2017, the CALBO Innovation and Technology Committee was established. I am pleased to announce that the committee has done an outstanding job of bringing a focused analysis for building and safety technology and automation issues. Committee members have published several articles in CALBO News throughout the year. These articles relate to technologies used in agencies and explore the pros and cons of such technologies.

Through the efforts of these talented individuals, we have arrived at the following conclusions:

  • It is not just technology that makes life easier or streamlines the process, but it is the staff and personnel who make it all happen. Devoting time to training staff to develop skills in this field is crucial to the success of implementing technology. Currently, there is little organized training and education for Building Officials. It is left upon us to become more technologically savvy.
  • There is a lack of uniformity in technology used by different building departments. Furthermore, within agencies themselves, there is a failure to synchronize their systems. This wastes time and causes unnecessary work for staff. It is time for vendors and software companies to come together to provide uniform systems based upon a common platform and protocols.

There is more to discuss about technology in our field, thus a full report of the committee’s findings will be provided to our members at the upcoming CALBO Annual Business Meeting in March 2018. The committee’s goal is to present the best management protocols and hopefully put out some technology fires that come our way.

As for the literal fires, I am also pleased to announce that CALBO’s 1-to-1 Campaign has raised over $30,000. This total, which includes ICC, local ICC chapters, and CALBO matched funds, will be donated to the American Red Cross California Wildfire Relief Fund. I want to recognize Mr. Jeff Janes, CALBO First Vice President, and Dr. Matt Wheeler, CALBO’s Executive Director, for their outstanding work on this effort. CALBO’s 1-to-1 Campaign is one of the largest philanthropic efforts of CALBO in years, and we are pleased to do our part to aid in the recovery efforts.

In summation, thinking “big picture” will help with the issues at hand and not leave room for disappointment with our jobs while we are putting out fires. While there are issues that overburden us in the office or in the field, we should pause, think, and learn from these experiences. Always leave room for growth in what you do.

As the holiday season is upon us, I wanted to wish everyone a happy and healthy season. The CALBO Board is looking forward to a great new year and a prosperous 2018 for everyone.

Coming Soon - Standard Plan
for Cripple Wall Retrofits
By: CALBO's Structural Safety Committee
The Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) through the Applied Technology Council (ATC) recently commissioned a comprehensive prescriptive plan set providing for the retrofit of dwellings with raised foundations including unbraced cripple walls. The plans, known as the Earthquake Strengthening of Cripple Walls in Wood-Frame Dwellings FEMA Plan Set , which are nearing completion, will conform to the 2016 California Existing Building Code. During development, members of CALBO’s Structural Safety Committee reviewed the plans for overall code compliance as well as presentation and usability.
This upcoming plan set builds upon several local efforts to provide standard plans for cripple wall retrofits. Some examples include the City of Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety Standard Plan Number 1 and Standard Plan Set A by the Association of Bay Area Governments , Earthquake and Hazards Program . These plans are available on the Earthquake Brace and Bolt (EQBB) webpage and have been used by various jurisdictions both on a case-by-case basis and program basis. In the latter case, EQBB has provided funding to qualifying homes in specific target seismically-active areas, which are known to have a substantial number of vulnerable homes. 
This new plan set is designed for experienced contractors and expands the application of previous prescriptive plans by addressing cripple walls as high as seven feet tall. The plan set also provides guidance for the use of tie-down anchors for taller cripple wall conditions or where available areas for new cripple wall sheathing are limited. Finally, the plan set also provides details for new concrete foundations where new perimeter construction or reconstruction is necessary.
This plan will be placed in the public domain and will be used in much the same way as previous plan sets. The purpose of bringing this to the attention of CALBO membership is to raise awareness that such plans exist, so that building officials have the option of allowing or encouraging their use should a need arise.
Additionally, for those jurisdictions considering taking a more proactive role in fostering community resiliency, these plans represent widely accepted and effective retrofit options.

Dangers and Limitations for
Using Spreadsheets
By: Issam Shahrouri, Building Official, City of Costa Mesa
CALBO Innovation and Technology Committee Member
Spreadsheets are one of the most common applications used in the workplace. We use them to store, manage, and track data. Spreadsheets are great and what attracts us to them is their simplicity and flexibility.

Did you know that spreadsheet limitations can result in errors, inefficiency, and security vulnerabilities making Excel the “World’s Most Dangerous Application”?

CALBO Exceeds Goal – Over $30,000 donated to American Red Cross California
Wildfire Relief Fund
When the wildfires ravaged our great state, CALBO heard from you – our members. The question on everyone’s mind was “what can we do?” It was important for CALBO to respond quickly, with impact, and find a manageable conduit for us all to contribute in this time of shared crisis.

Given that the fires were statewide, CALBO wanted to find a program that would benefit all wildfire recovery efforts and assist the communities with the greatest need. CALBO placed its faith in the American Red Cross in their ability to mobilize and assist with disaster relief efforts in all affected regions.
CALBO rolled out the 1-to-1 Campaign right before the CALBO Education Week in Ontario. The theory behind “one” to “one” was to find a way for everyone to contribute – both big and small – with a CALBO match in mind. Our hope was that everyone could afford $1.00, which CALBO would then match, thereby doubling that individual contribution. At the CALBO Education Week in Ontario, we brought in $2,026.00 in individual contributions, which equates to $1.00 per student and meeting our goal of the 1-to-1 Campaign. 
Our partners at the International Code Council were the next call asking the question, “what can we do?” It was an easy answer, and with their assistance, your $1.00 contribution became matched by both CALBO and ICC tripling each dollar provided. Local ICC Chapters also answered the call, with many matching their own member’s contributions. 
Under the umbrella of the CALBO 1-to-1 Campaign, nearly $31,000.00 has been donated to the American Red Cross California Wildfire Relief Fund. Our thanks to our generous members. In times of crisis, Californians come together.

For questions regarding this announcement,
CALBO's Capitol Corner
2017 is quickly coming to an end, and soon the second year of the 2017-18 Legislative session will begin. The Governor took all final actions on legislation in October and most bills will go into effect January 1, 2018. The CALBO News: Fall 2017 Edition included information on a number of bills CALBO engaged on throughout the past year. This newsletter addresses legislation that impacts building departments and that will go into effect for 2018. CALBO will keep membership abreast of new legislation after the February bill introduction deadline.

Please find below the complete list of CALBO's Legislative Report/Bills of Interest. Please refer to the CALBO Legislative Watch Webpage to review all bills that CALBO is tracking.

CALBO Position: Watch
Status: Effective January 1, 2018
Summary: Prohibits an employer from relying on the salary history information of an applicant for employment as a factor in determining whether to offer an applicant employment or what salary to offer an applicant. Provides that an applicant is not prohibited from voluntarily disclosing salary history information and would not prohibit an employer from considering or relying on that voluntarily disclosed salary history information in determining salary.

CALBO Position: Watch
Status: Effective January 1, 2018
Summary: AB 494 amends the Planning and Zoning Law to provide that an accessory dwelling unit (ADU) may be rented separately from the primary residence. Requires that parking requirements for accessory dwelling units not exceed a certain number. Removes the prohibition on specified off-street parking where that parking is not allowed anywhere else in the jurisdiction.
CALBO Observations: This Bill will create more work for Building Officials in the areas of permitting, plan check, inspection, code enforcement, property addressing, and utility connections.
CALBO Position: Watch
Status: Effective January 1, 2018           
Summary: Relates to the Planning and Zoning Law. Requires certain cities and counties to make all documentation and forms associated with the permitting of advanced energy storage available on a publicly accessible Web site. Provides for the electronic submittal of permit applications. Authorizes the Governor's Office of Planning and Research to provide guidance on energy storage permitting, including streamlining, best practices, and certain factors for consideration by local government.
CALBO Observations: In 2016-17, a similar measure was introduced that called for both the streamlining and the expediting of permits associated with advanced energy storage. CALBO worked with the sponsor of the bill to remove permit expediting from the measure and therefore stayed neutral on the bill in 2017.
CALBO Position: Watch
Status: Effective January 1, 2018           
Summary:   Requires a city, county, or city and county, including a charter city and county, that approves a building permit for the construction of an electrified security fence to notify the local fire department and fire marshal and to provide them with a copy of the approved permit.
CALBO Position:  Watch
Status: Effective July 21, 2017
Summary:   Requires new construction or renovation of a public building that includes at least one restroom that is open to the public, to provide a specified number of safe, sanitary, convenient, and publicly accessible baby diaper changing stations open to both men and women. Requires various facilities, including a theater, sports arena, or library, to install and maintain a specified number of baby diaper changing stations, if the facility is open to the public .
CALBO Position: Watch/Support
Status: Effective January 1, 2018
Summary: AB 1379 Extends the operation of a local business licensing fee and a building permit fee and temporarily increases (from $1 to $4) the amounts of the fees. Requires local governments to retain 90% of the collected fees to be deposited into the local CASp Certification and Training Fund for increased certified access specialist training and certification within the local jurisdiction.
CALBO Observations: Last year, CALBO opposed a similar measure because in addition to increasing funding for training, which CALBO supported, the measure required all building inspectors that inspect for access be CASp certified. CALBO was clear that requiring all inspectors who inspect for access to be CASp certified was not the proper course of action, but that CALBO did indeed support increased funding. The measure returned this year and only addressed the funding, thus CALBO supported the measure upon request of the author.
CALBO Position: Watch
Status: Effective January 1, 2018
Summary: Authorizes cities and counties to waive or reduce all building permit fees for improvements to the home of a veteran with a qualifying disability that are made to accommodate that disability.
CALBO Position: Watch
Status: Effective January 1, 2018
Summary: Increases the safety requirements of certain pools or spas, requiring they be equipped with specified drowning prevention safety features when a building permit is issued. Revises the characteristics of required safety features. Deletes an exemption from the act of political subdivisions that adopt ordinances for swimming pools. Requires home inspections to include certain examinations of pools or spas.

Director of Public Affairs, at  or 916-457-1103.
Is Your Home-Work-Favorite Coffee Shop Safe? The Seismic Resilience Initiative
By: Evan Reis, SE
Executive Director, US Resiliency Council
During this year alone, the world has witnessed record breaking natural disasters that have affected communities throughout the world.

Many interest groups and concerned citizens in California are also concerned with the future of our state if and when an earthquake strikes.

The combined destruction of property from “mega” hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria could exceed $200 billion according to the firm Moody’s Analytics. Astounding as that number is, the most recent California Shake Out study estimates that a major quake along the San Andreas Fault could cause more than $200 billion in physical and economic damage by itself, and result in 1,800 or more deaths.

Click on the link below to read more about The Seismic Resilience Initiative made possible through collaboration between the US Resiliency Council and the Structural Engineers Association of California.
