Senate Bill 9 destroys neighborhoods, displaces families and decreases affordability. It lets developers build 6 units of dense housing where 1 home now sits — not one of them affordable. Speculators will bid against and displace families, especially in well-located diverse neighborhoods. In a sweeping attack on the environment, SB 9 dismantles existing protections and lets developers destroy yards and bulldoze trees, encouraging dense construction even in severe fire zones. ACT NOW to tell your Assembly Member to vote NO on SB 9 .


Destroys Families and Neighborhoods

Speculators will bid against homebuyers and displace families, especially in lower income neighborhoods and communities of color, where parents work hard to attain the dream of generational wealth for their children. SB 9 transforms homeowner areas to corporate-owned rentals. 

Dismantles Environmental Protections

SB 9 destroys yards, trees, and permeable surfaces, creating hotter, drier, less livable neighborhoods. Unique area – including severe fire zones – will be sacrificed to dense development. SB 9 overrides the needs of people and the planet. Parking, roads, water, and sewers will be overburdened. Developers will profit, but we will all pay the bill.

Decreases
Affordability

Many Californians are struggling to buy a home. SB 9 turns California’s 7 million homes into Wall Street assets, inviting rental giants and investor funds to outbid families to build high-profit luxury projects – 6 dense units without yards or garages where 1 home stands today.
