The City Council said nothing about SB 10 although neighborhood groups had ask them to state that Sacramento will not implement SB 10. Neighborhood groups will continue to advocate for changes to the SB 9 ordinance and to stop SB 10 from being implemented in Sacramento.
SB 9 allows any single family lot to be spit into two lots and two units built on each of these lots. The state has already mandated that up to two Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU) can be built on any residential lot, so that would mean a total of 8 units could replace one single family house. SB 10 allows cities to pass an ordinance with a majority vote of the city council to allow up to 14 units on what is now one single family lot. Click for more info. Both SB 9 and SB 10 take effect January 1, 2022. SB 9 is a mandate, SB 10 is permissive so cities do not have to implement SB 10.
Sacramento residents are opposing the densification proposals that will eliminate single family neighborhoods in Sacramento. These include the General Plan proposed upzoning, SB 9 & SB 10.
These proposals are harmful to neighborhoods and do NOT provide affordable housing NOR do they ensure that ALL Sacramento neighborhoods have save streets, good schools, parks, trees and other quality of life amenities. Click for details.
State overreach into Local Land Use Decisions Several bills have gone through the CA Legislature this year that push high residential density on cities and counties without any say by those affected.
Smart Densification: We need affordable housing and smart densification that is well planned, does not overload already overburdened infrastructure, that makes good use of underutilized commercial spaces and does not weaken the fabric of Sacramento’s many and diverse existing single family neighborhoods.
