California Gov. Gavin Newsom has signed into law Senate Bill (SB) 9, a landmark law that would allow for the ministerial approval of certain housing development projects containing up to two dwelling units (i.e., duplexes) on a single-family zoned parcels.
In addition to permitting two units on a single family lot, the proposed legislation would allow qualifying lot splits to be approved ministerially (i.e., without discretionary review or hearings) pursuant to a parcel map, upon meeting a number of criteria.
This Holland & Knight alert reviews key requirements of the new law and provides considerations to help single-family homeowners and developers understand SB 9, its qualifying criteria and implication on future projects.
