Planning Director Bulletin No. 8: Streamlined Housing Development
In response to California’s housing crisis, the State Legislature has introduced numerous bills to fund, incentivize, and legalize new housing. On September 16, 2021, Governor Newsom signed into law Senate Bill 9, which allows duplexes and lot splits for certain parcels in single family (RH-1) zoning districts. The bill goes into effect January 1, 2022.
