Governor Brown Signs AB 744, a Smart Growth Victory for California

The North Parker in North ParkOn Friday, Governor Jerry Brown signed into law AB 744, which updates California’s Density Bonus law by allowing developments to build less parking if they maintain a portion of their units as affordable to low income residents. Circulate San Diego helped draft and champion this bill.

News coverage has recently highlighted San Diego’s very poor performance for allowing new housing near transit, especially for affordable homes. Fortunately, developing state law continues to provide some relief to shortsighted local policies.

SANDAG Approves Flawed Regional Plan, But Hope Remains

presser.jpgUnfortunately, today the SANDAG Board votes to approve a flawed Regional Plan, the work continues. SANDAG is currently preparing a regional "Quality of Life" measure that may give voters an opportunity to fund acceleration of transit and active transportation projects.

SANDAG’s Regional Plan assumes a Quality of Life measure that generates a 1/4 cent sales tax over a 30 year period. Yet, SANDAG is currently contemplating a 1/2 cent sales tax over a 40 year period–more than twice the Quality of Life revenue contemplated by the Draft 2015 Regional Plan.

With additional resources, SANDAG will have substantially more funding flexibility to advance transit and active transportation projects into earlier periods of the region’s transportation plan. If the Regional Plan represents what SANDAG is willing to do today, Quality of Life should represent our aspirations for tomorrow.

Check out our Op-Ed in the Voice of San Diego to learn more about our position on the Regional Plan.
