Why California’s AB 1924 Will Allow for Denser, More Resilient Housing in the State
“Why will AB 1924 from Assemblymember Grayson help build resilience in California?”
Right now, California housing policy does not require jurisdictions to assess fees on a per-square-foot basis. As a result, developers who want to build smaller, more affordable units will have to jump through hoops and loops and may have to pay multiple fees to break ground. However, California Assemblymember Tim Grayson wants to change this with his new bill AB 1924. If enacted into law, AB 1924 would require agencies to charge on a per-square-foot basis, simplifying the process and allowing for more units to come online at a faster rate and lower cost. The more new, dense, and affordable housing that comes online, the more resilient California will be to disasters. This is Why California’s AB 1924 Will Allow for Denser, More Resilient Housing in the State.
