These are general instructions on the application process. In most cases, a City of Oakland Planning & Building staff member will provide you with the AMMR form and give instructions on how to complete and submit the form. Please contact the staff member who requested the form to ask questions specific to your project.
Please have one copy of all evidence or proof that the alternate material, design, or method of construction proposed is at least equivalent to that required in the current building codes ready to be submitted with your request form.
Please wait for staff to contact you before proceeding to Step Three.
