How did we do it?


Story of Students in San Diego regional policy

  • Identified a problem (fall 2011):

  • California Health and Safety Code 17920.3(12):

  • Infestation of insects, vermin, or rodents as

  • determined by a health officer

  • Got local media attention

  • Developed a solution

  • Talked with some stakeholders

  • Pitched a bill with a local representative in Sacramento (winter 2012)

…but they didn’t get any traction


A regional policy “Simple” Fix


What We Got regional policy

  • Infestation of insects, vermin, or rodents as determined by a health officer or, if an agreement does not exist with an agency that has a health officer, the infestation can be determined by a code enforcement officer, as defined in Section 829.5 of the Penal Code, upon successful completion of a course of study in the appropriate subject matter as determined by the local jurisdiction.


Key Lessons regional policy

  • Multi-Sector Partnerships

    • Buy-in from key stakeholders

    • Broad base of support

  • Politically Feasible Solution

    • No costs, no new rules

  • Early Coalition Building
