UHA II opposes SB 50 because it would destroy historic single-family communities such as View Park, Windsor Hills, Leimert Park, the Crenshaw District, and Baldwin Hills by overriding local zoning law to require a minimum of 4 units and four- to eight-story multifamily buildings on single-family zoned land and removing historic district protections implemented after 2010.
SB 50 claims to be the answer to our affordable housing crisis, but it's actually a giveaway to developers and Wall Street investors who will build more luxury housing that will push housing costs higher and make homeownership and affordable rent even less attainable for our residents. In short, SB 50 would create even more gentrification.
Make no mistake, SB 50 is bad public policy driven by greedy developers and narrow-minded elected officials who should be looking for opportunities to collaborate with local communities to solve real housing challenges instead of forcing a one-size-fits-all bill on our diverse neighborhoods. We think SB 50 is a "lose-lose proposition."
