State Sen. Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) has re introduced S.B 50.
Which aims to radically increase housing growth in California
S.B. 50 would override local restrictions on building, letting developers create more housing and denser housing near train stations and high-frequency bus stops.
Homeowners would be able to build accessory dwelling units or casitas; companies would be able to build small apartment complexes.
A city could allow taller apartment buildings in one neighborhood but only smaller apartment buildings in another that seemed less suited to greater density.
