Allows qualifying urban lots to be split into a maximum of two residential units within a single-family residential zone (SB 9 allows for the split of 1 residential lot into 2. With existing law, each of those lots can have 1 Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) for a potential of 4 units total).
Criteria include, but are not limited to:
Applicant for urban lot split must sign an affidavit stating that they intend to occupy one of the housing units as their principal residence for a minimum of 3 years from the date the split is approved. Expiration date for an approved or conditionally approved tentative map for an urban lot split is extended by SB 9.
There are restrictions as to how the proposed development can be built, such as the size and location of the proposed development.
Allows a local government (including charter cities) to adopt an ordinance to zone any parcel located in a “transit-rich area” or “urban infill site” for up to 10 units per parcel at a height specified by the local government in the ordinance.
