Senate Bill SB9 has passed the State Senate and is now before the State Assembly.
> It would mean the end of single-family neighborhoods throughout California.
> SB 9 would force all cities to allow:
> Splitting any single-family lot into two.
> Two homes on each lot, thus replacing one home with four – plus ADUs (accessory dwelling unit).
> Four-foot setbacks side and rear: no privacy, no backyards, no green space.
> Approval without CEQA environmental review.
> SB9 does not require or provide for any affordable housing.
> SB9 is a gift to developers and real estate investment companies, who will maximize profits by building luxury and market-rate housing.
These bills ignore:
> Increased demand on schools, parks, water, sewers, power grid, public safety personnel
> Traffic and parking requirements
> Privacy, backyards, trees and personal green space.
> Environmental impacts, including air quality and noise
> Our right to determine local zoning through duly-elected representatives
> If you oppose these mandates, sign the petition to your Assembly member:
> AND CALL HIM NOW!

One thought on “GOOD-BYE SINGLE FAMILY NEIGHBORHOODS”
Essentially this is the Portland, Oregon model. Yet despite this, Portland, Oregon is still far too expensive for the majority of people to buy a home of any kind. This won’t do a damned thing to fix the homeless problem but instead, hurt everyone else.
