Under the California Public Records Act § 6250 et seq., I am requesting an opportunity to inspect or obtain copies of public records that pertain to all building and construction permits, hardship exemptions and all correspondence relating thereto, for the business called the Waterfront Hotel located at 10 Washington Street, Oakland, CA, as far back as such records are maintained, but no further than January 1, 1970. The California Public Records Act requires a response within ten business days. If access to the records I am requesting will take longer, please contact me with information about when I might expect copies or the ability to inspect the requested records. If you deny any or all of this request, please cite each specific exemption you feel justifies the refusal to release the information and notify me of the appeal procedures available to me under the law. Thank you for considering my request.
