Mayor Faulconer’s SB 50 Plan for SD

Mayor Faulconer’s developer driven “Complete Communities Housing Solution Plan” will be a NIGHTMARE for San Dieagans who live in TPAs (Transit Priority Areas).

Go to Sen. Scott Wiener’s new Bill, SB 902, is another attempt to allow duplexes, triplexes and fourplexes to be built in single-family zoned neighborhoods.

SB50, one of the most egregious housing bills, was defeated in the California Senate on 1/30/20. State legislators are attempting to remove our coastal and inland height limits, setback and parking space requirements. To increase density, they want to remove FAR (Floor Area Ratios). SB 902 would allow up to 4 units to be built on Single Family zoned lots.

Corporate Developers & Wall Street Financiers want to build Miami Beach luxury style towers along California’s coastline. They backed SB 330 to do it. San Diego residents need to understand the pitfalls of TOD as a planning model for San Diego.

Along with density limits, inland building height limits have traditionally been the only regulations preventing over-building local communities without sufficient infrastructure. Density and height limits would’ve been outlawed if SB 50 had passed in the Senate.

Will changing single-family zoning to multi-family harm or help?

We're in an affordability crisis that supply-side housing policy can't solve. Adding more luxury units only adds fuel to the fire. Recent housing legislation is aimed at disrupting our single-family neighborhoods with high-end multi-unit rentals.

Some states and cities have outlawed single- family zoning altogether. Across San Diego. transit priority areas (TPAs) are being up-zoned to allow dense luxury apartment construction which gentrifies our neighborhoods and busts our height and density limits without providing affordable housing. New state legislation, such as SB 50 would have allowed this same type of apartment construction in our single-family neighborhoods.

The same state senator, Scott Wiener, who introduced SB 50, is not interested in the fact that the public stopped the Bill from passing. He introduced SB 902 in January 2020 that will allow duplexes, triplexes, and fourplexes to be built in our single-family neighborhoods. Unfortunately, Mayor Faulconer's "Complete Communities Housing Solution" is just another version of SB 50 & SB 902.

Having an extensive background in the real estate market, I know that we cannot “build our way out” of the affordability problem facing San Diego and the state of California.

I’m working with current and former legislators, affordable housing advocates and other community leaders seeking real solutions to our affordability crisis. I hold public meetings, support local community planning groups, organize legislative response groups, and create electronic petitions to enable the public to voice their opposition or support of local and statewide housing legislation.

OPPOSE SB50


“They’re coming for our homes! I’ll stand up for San Diego residents against the corporate speculators seeking to take advantage of our city and our neighborhoods.”
I was very disappointed by my opponent’s ( Todd Gloria)vote to approve SB 330 last week. SB 330 would void local restrictions on density, land use, zoning, and design standards and give Sacramento politicians control of local land use decisions!

As your next City Attorney, I’ll prosecute the corporations making millions while abusing the system and profiting from the harm they inflict on our neighborhoods
The city attorney must defend against efforts by state and federal politicians to take land-use and housing decisions away from the mayor, city council, and community planning groups who represent the will of the people.
