SAN DIEGO–The County Board of Supervisors Monday adopted a resolution to waive permit fees for North County residents who have lost their homes in the Lilac Fire.
Fire victims who plan to rebuild their homes or other damaged structures will get a waiver of plan check fees for the rebuilding of structures damaged or destroyed in the unincorporated area, or other areas where County approvals are required. Also, residents can get their property reassessed and the reduced value will remain in effect until the property is rebuilt or repaired.
The resolution means the County can continue the local emergency, use multiple agencies to help fight the Lilac Fire and ask for disaster aid from the state and the federal government.
As of Monday, Dec. 11, the fire has burned 4,100 acres and destroyed 184 structures.
Fire victims can also visit the County’s recovery website. Those who live in the unincorporated area may also call the Recovery Assistance Hotline at (858) 495-5200 or email CountyFireRecovery@sdcounty.ca.gov. Residents who live in incorporated areas should contact their city.
