SB 9: The California HOME Act Implementation


  • Muhammad Alameldin, Policy Associate with the Terner Center for Housing Innovation at UC Berkeley
  • Ryan Joy, Policy Associate with California YIMBY

SB 9 allows many California homeowners to divide their property into two lots, thereby increasing opportunities for homeownership in their neighborhood. It also allows two homes to be built on each of those lots, with the effect of legalizing fourplexes in areas that previously only allowed one home. If you’re interested in how this legislation is impacting housing development in your region and throughout California, join us to hear some insight from some of the leading experts in the field.
