Cali legislators are some of the dumbest MFers on the planet.

That's going to be an interesting legal hurdle. I have to wonder what the state's Constitution has for provisions in this area.

Sounds like more stirring the pot by the OP who doesn't even live anywhere near California.

So impacting LA, Orange County, San Diego and other areas all the way up to the Bay area isn't considered "Statewide"?


In some areas in counties with more than 600,000 residents, including Los Angeles, San Diego, Orange, Santa Clara and San Francisco, Wiener’s bill would also allow larger apartment buildings on land previously zoned single-family only — though local height limits would remain intact. To qualify for density increases, such neighborhoods would have to be high-income and near quality jobs and public schools.

California could bring radical change to single-family-home neighborhoods


But as they crawl northward from there, those buildings slope down into single-story shops and restaurants — a T-Mobile, a Denny’s, a Princess Bridal Shop. Before too long, the tracks slice through otherwise untouched single-family neighborhoods just east of the L.A. River.

As the trains whir by, bungalows and ranch homes sit in suburban serenity. It’s as if the tens of thousands of people who traverse their land every weekday had no impact at all.

California Senate Bill 50, for better or worse, could change all of that.


How Senate Bill 50 — the bill that aims to address California’s housing crisis — would impact Long Beach


In communities defined as “job-rich” or “transit-rich,” such projects would receive waivers from maximum density controls, maximum height limits and minimum parking requirements. Local control over planning would be overruled by the state’s new streamlining process of approvals.

You may be thinking, could this happen on my street? Could my next-door neighbor sell to a developer who will replace a three-bedroom house with a four-story building of 12 apartments and six parking spaces?

Yes, if you live in a “job-rich” area. If you live in a “transit-rich” area, it’s different. In a “transit-rich” area, there would be no parking spaces.


Senate Bill 50 threatens California’s homeowners


Pretty sad when someone "who doesn't even live anywhere near California" has a better grasp on things than those who do.

Not much doubt about that.

This zoning keeps industrial factories out of family neighborhoods. Are they giving up on trying to live in a clean environment or just exercising their right to be hypocrites?

He talks of hassles with zoning regulations, while a short distance down the road there was a shanty town where zoning regulations were completely unenforced; outhouses, extension cords on the ground providing electrical power to the shacks/trailers. The country zoning inspector said they had no way of enforcing zoning regulations in these shanty towns.

Apparently a lot of places in California's central valley are taking on the appearance of rural Mexico.
It's the Left's version of M A G A . They are taking America "Back to it's Roots".....Isn't it refreshing?"
