California may be on the verge of eliminating single-family zoning statewide. This is huge. And itโ€™s a sign of how quickly the politics around housing and land use have shifted in just the last year.

On Wednesday, a key committee signed off on Senate Bill 50 โ€” San Francisco Sen. Scott Wienerโ€™s bill to allow denser, taller housing around transit and in communities with lots of jobs. As part of the negotiations, Wiener agreed to merge his proposal with Senate Bill 4 by Sen. Mike McGuire (D-Healdsburg) and the result includes one very big change: Single-family houses could be converted to four-unit buildings, by right, anywhere in the state.

That is, a property owner could subdivide or remodel a house to turn it into four apartments. Or a developer could build a fourplex on a vacant single-family lot. The proposal wouldnโ€™t allow people to demolish a house and build a new fourplex on the property, however.

  1. Elizabeth Warren was pushing policy to eliminate zoning in Congress-build cheaper. It’s supposed to make housing more affordable but you know the only way to do that is to cap rents. And, to stop letting stay 1 million legal immigrants per year, around 90% of whom just woke up one day and decided to move to the United States. Only around 10% are refugee-asylum seekers. It’s why I can’t support her.
