May 17 2013 (San Diego)-- On May 15, the San Diego Board of Supervisors unanimously approved an ordinance waiving building permit and plan review fees for disabled veterans who need home modifications to accommodate their disabilities.

"We are always looking for ways to improve the lives of those who risk their lives to protect our country," said Supervisor Dianne Jacob, who introduced the measure along with Supervisor Bill Horn.

She added,  "By waiving permit fees on home modifications, we can help make sure that our disabled veterans can continue living independently." 

Approximately 250,000 disabled veterans live in San Diego County, said Supervisor Bill Horn.  He added, “I am humbled and grateful everyday for the dedication and sacrifice of our veterans...This is just one small token of our appreciation.”
