Circulate San Diego joined a Home Building Alliance letter supporting Senate Bill 10, which allows local governments a streamlined path to zone neighborhoods for gentle, middle income density — up to ten units per parcel — if they choose. Various state and local laws make it extremely difficult to do common-sense rezoning quickly; even very mild efforts are often mired in expensive, decades-long legal appeals and litigation. This bill exempts that zoning action from being considered a project under the California Environmental Quality Act. To be eligible for this local action, an area must be urban infill or be near high quality public transportation or a job-rich area. Read the coalition letter here.
