Preliminary Housing Development (SB-330)
California Senate Bill 330, “The Housing Crisis Act of 2019,” was signed into law by Governor Newsom on October 9, 2019 and became effective January 1, 2020. The bill establishes a statewide housing emergency to be in effect until January 1, 2025. For more information, see Planning Director’s Bulletin No. 7.
The Housing Crisis Act allows for an applicant to submit a preliminary application for any housing development project, meaning a project of two or more units and that is at least two-thirds residential by floor area. The purpose of the preliminary application is to collect specified site and project information in order to determine the zoning, design, subdivision, and fee requirements that will apply to the housing development project throughout the review and entitlement process.
