Housing Sustainability Districts Proposed for Local Government

Assembly Bill 73 (Chiu) proposes to permit local governments to adopt a housing sustainability district that authorizes residential use within the district through the ministerial issuance of a permit. The local government would first have to obtain preliminary approval from the State Office of Planning and Research. The bill also allows zoning incentive payments upon approval by the Department of Housing and Community Development. The bill would require that prevailing wages be paid in connection with all projects within the housing sustainability district. Assembly Bill 73 also requires a lead agency, when designating housing sustainability districts, to prepare an EIR for the designation and would exempt from CEQA qualifying housing projects undertaken in the housing sustainability.
