Additional Dwelling Units in Transit-Rich or Urban Infill Sites
Parcels in urban areas can be subject to zoning changes
Government Code § 65913.5
In transit rich or urban infill sites, local jurisdictions can now voluntarily pass ordinances to zone any parcel for up to ten residential units. These ordinances and any amendments to a general plan consistent with the ordinance are exempt from CEQA review. The bill also prohibits a local jurisdiction from reducing the density of any parcel subject to this section, and provides that any project on a parcel zoned pursuant to this section may not be approved ministerially, or be exempted from CEQA if the parcel contains more than 10 units.
