Governor Signs Toni Atkins’ Bill Allowing Small Infill Housing Developments
Gov. Gavin Newsom on Thursday signed a key housing bill introduced by Senate President Toni Atkins that permits infill development of duplex and four-plex homes in neighborhoods currently zoned for traditional single-family homes.
Senate Bill 9 allows owners of single-family lots to split them into two parcels and build up to four units.
“The intent of SB 9 is clear — to streamline the process so homeowners can create a duplex or subdivide their existing property up to four units — and aims to set California’s housing availability on a path of inclusion so that more families can attain the California dream,” said Atkins after the governor’s signature.
