Addressing California’s Housing Crisis Through Legislation: A Conversation with Senator Scott Wiener

Senator Scott Wiener
California State Senator, District 11

Arielle O. Harris
Partner, Downey Brand

Join California State Senator Scott Wiener (District 11) and Arielle Harris, Partner at Downey Brand LLP, for a discussion on state housing legislation passed in 2019. Learn about recently enacted housing legislation, including new legal requirements for local land use permitting, accessory dwelling units, changes to vesting rights and environmental streamlining. This program is useful for both attorneys counseling cities and counties on how to comply with recent changes, as well as attorneys representing developers or private property owners seeking to take advantage of new laws promoting housing production.

• An overview of Senate Bill 330’s new standards and timelines for city and county permitting of housing projects, changes to vesting rights, and other provisions incentivizing the production of housing
• The elimination of legal barriers to the construction of accessory dwelling units, including changes under Assembly Bills 68, 671, and 881
• Discussion of continuing legal barriers to housing production, and possible legislation for the 2019-2020 legislative session

Section Co-Chairs: Samir Abdelnour, Hanson Bridgett LLP & Clare Ellis, Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP
