On October 9, 2019, the Governor approved Senate Bill (SB) 330, which enacts the Housing Crisis Act of 2019 (HCA). The HCA suspends the City’s ability to impose new restrictions on the development of new housing until January 1, 2025. Since housing is an allowable use within the Urban Village, beginning January 1, 2020, the HCA will prohibit the City from amending its General Plan or zoning standards or policies in a manner that would lessen the permitted density or intensity of housing in the Urban Village, or from adopting or implementing a housing moratorium or growth control measure limiting the construction of new housing in the Urban Village. The HCA does not prevent the City from amending the zoning in the Urban Village to facilitate the development of new housing. The proposed new project submitted by MGP would increase the amount of new housing as permitted in the Urban Village.
