1) Immediately create a working group to develop an emergency ordinance to implement SB 9 that includes neighborhood associations.
2) This ordinance must include provisions to mitigate impacts on neighborhoods from the densification of SB 9 AND not allow Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) for lots split under SB 9.
3) Do NOT implement SB 10.
4) Keep existing R-1 density.
SB 9 allows any single family lot to be spit into two lots and two units built on each of these lots.
The state has already mandated that up to two Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU) can be built on any residential lot, so that would mean a total of 8 units could replace one single family house.
SB 10 allows cities to pass an ordinance with a majority vote of the city council to allow up to 14 units on what is now one single family lot. Click for more info.
Help Save Our Neighborhoods
Sacramento residents are opposing the densification proposals that will eliminate single family neighborhoods in Sacramento.
These include the General Plan proposed upzoning, SB 9 & SB 10.
These proposals are harmful to neighborhoods and do NOT provide affordable housing NOR do they ensure that ALL Sacramento neighborhoods have save streets, good schools, parks, trees and other quality of life amenities.

We need affordable housing and smart densification that is well planned, does not overload already overburdened infrastructure, that makes good use of underutilized commercial spaces and does not weaken the fabric of Sacramento’s many and diverse existing single family neighborhoods.
