The EOR has not submitted a stamped and signed drawing with all the missing information (I don't know who submitted it it is not even listed in the permit), but he claimes that he is the EOR and states in the SOR that he inspected (!) the footing (36'"wide) , 8" CMU wall and the reinforcing steel based on the aforementioned City approved sketch. I did run a calculation based on the approved drawing and found out that the wall and the 36" wide footing are way overstressed. The wall height was later on reduced by two courses (requested by the Zoning Dept.), but is still a little over 6' and the vertical rebar is still sticking out above the top of the wall!
I am representing the neighbor. Our "team" physically verified the 18" fooing width. Mr. Phelps from the Mission impossible climed over the wall around midnight, drove (pushing it down by hand into the highly saturated soil with no darainiage) a few 5' long stakes (steel bars) at the 19" width location and found no resistance. The city height limit is 6' measured from the lower (my clients) driveway elevation. We have photos to prove it but have not "published" them yet.
