Assembly Bill 1505 (Bloom) allows the legislative body of a city or county to adopt an ordinance that requires, as a condition of the development of residential rental units, that the development include a certain percentage of affordable residential rental units. Any ordinance must provide alternative means of compliance that may include, but is not limited to, in-lieu fees, land dedication, off-site construction, or acquisition and rehabilitation of existing units. The bill addresses an appellate court decision in 2009 – Palmer v. City of Los Angeles – that cut off local governments’ option to apply inclusionary polices to rental housing. The bill passed the Assembly and is pending in the Senate.
