South LA Alliance Town Hall: Oppose SB 1120
August 15 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
While many of us have been distracted by the changes to everyday life due to COVID-19, a number of bills have been winding their way through the California legislature that may forever change the landscape of the single-family home community.
SB 902 and SB 1120 will allow 10-unit apartments built in every neighborhood and all single-family lots to be split in half, to build multiple housing units on each half.
AB 725 and AB 3040 will mandate that single-family neighborhoods be identified as locations for multi-family development and allow four dwellings built where one home stands now. In most cases, these changes are “by right” (meaning no community input) and no affordable units are required. In case you’re wondering: No communities are exempt — not gated, not hillside, not working-class or middle-class communities. These bills increase land speculation, gentrification, and displacement of vulnerable communities.
Our State Representatives have done little to reach out to get community input. But they will likely vote on these bills before the end of August.
Tomorrow, there will be a Town Hall hosted by the South LA Alliance for Locally Planned Growth to inform homeowners about SB 1120. The meeting will be via Zoom and the link/dial in information is below. Tune in to get the information while there’s still time to let your voice be heard.
