This is an ok enough project. I don't agree with prohibiting the demolition of apsrtments which have received rent in the past 7 years because these could make way for bigger apartments, or they simply could be run down enough to justify a demolition. Besides, it should be up to the owners to decide.
On another note, the opposition to yimby policies is very pernicious>SB 902 destroys that. They won’t be knocking down blocks, but it puts a lot of houses at risk for duplexes and triplexes, buildings people do not want.”
If people did not want duplexes and triplexes, the government would not have to produce laws that prohibit people from building them. >And SB 902 doesn’t guarantee cheaper housing, but simply more housing.
Someone doesn't understand how supply and demand works, this is the stupidest argument I've ever read in my life
The real argument against it, that none of the nimby congressmen will admit to, is that the bill will work to reduce the property value of the special interest groups which they serve. Right now californian low density cities are a fragile fairyland world where cities can grow infinitely without increasing the housing supply. I am very susprised that this bill passed. But the other hand, the battle is still very much ahead
