This is a bill proposed by Senator Scott Weiner from San Francisco to address the house shortage. Unfortunately there are a lot of shortcomings in it that are not in the best interest of cohesive neighborhoods. One of its biggest pitfalls is that it will allow dense multifamily apartment building in R1 zoning. In other words, they could build apartments right next to one’s home! It is for reasons such as this that your TLHOA is opposed to this bill, and has joined together with Studio City, Sherman Oaks, Tarzana, Woodland Hills, among other local HOA’s in opposition.
