Streamlined Housing Development Supplemental (SB-9)
California Senate Bill 9 (SB-9) was signed by Governor Gavin Newsom on September 16, 2021 and became effective January 1, 2022. SB-9 allows duplexes and lot splits for certain parcels in single-family (RH-1, RH-1-(D), and RH-1-(S)) zoning. For more information, see Planning Director’s Bulletin No. 8.
SB-9 require local entities to streamline the approval of certain housing projects by providing a ministerial approval process, removing the requirement for analysis under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Public Resources Code sections 21000 et seq, and removing the requirement for conditional use authorization or other similar discretionary entitlements granted by the Planning Commission or Historic Preservation Commission. This is a voluntary program that a project sponsor may elect to pursue, provided that certain eligibility criteria are met.
