Summary of SB 9 (Let’s End Homeownership in California) Crushes single-family zoning in California, a threat to 7 million homeowners at all income levels. Wiener has called yards and single-family homes “immoral.” SB 9 allows 4 market-rate homes where 1 home now stands (or up to 6 units, if developers use an obscure “two-step” that is allowed by this bill). SB 9 requires NO affordable units. It clearly opens all single-family streets to the unchecked, greedy and disruptive investor speculation pouring into the single-family-home market today. SB 9 is the beginning of the end of homeownership in California. It is the worst and most divisive bill of 2021. These dense projects can be built in our dangerous FIRE ZONES statewide, a fact obscured in the wording of this bill.
Summary of SB 10 (Let’s Allow 14-Unit Buildings Everywhere) Allows any city council to overturn voter-approved ballot measures that protect shorelines, farms and other lands — killing a 108-year-old California voter right. Equally horrifying, SB 10 allows any city council to rezone almost any parcel to allow 10-unit luxury apartments, plus 2 ADUs and 2 JADUs (granny flats), overriding all zoning including single-family and commercial. It invites the demolition and gentrification of older, diverse, multi-family and single-family areas. SB 10 requires NO affordable units. Like SB 9, SB 10 opens neighborhoods to unchecked speculation. These large projects can be built in our dangerous FIRE ZONES statewide, a fact obscured in the wording of this bill.
