Game-changing California housing bill, SB 827 introduced by State Senator Scott Wiener
SB 827 map

SB 827, "Transit-rich Housing Bonus," is proposed 2018 California state legislation that would encourage high-density housing development anywhere in the vicinity of regular transit service. It would exempt residential developments in such areas from typical zoning limitations such as maximum density or required provision of parking, and allowing up to 85 feet building height.

See SB827 for our complete and updating coverage, including responses and revision proposals from many commentators.
