Attention Local Officials:
The California Legislature just passed Senate Bill 9 (Atkins), a measure that would fundamentally change neighborhoods across California by replacing single-family homes with seas of apartments–regardless of local zoning restrictions. SB9 would strip your cities of local control over zoning laws.
Now it’s on Governor Newsom’s desk. Contact him today and urge him to veto SB9 TODAY. His deadline is Sunday, October 10.
We also created a toolkit to make it as easy as possible for you to inform your constituents about SB9. Whether at the grocery store or in an online community group, NOW is the time to get the word out and take action.
Post this information and image on your social media to get the word out about SB9
#SenateBill9 will allow your neighbors to build up to 4-10 unit apartment buildings right up to your property line and with no additional parking.
This is what your neighborhood could become if #SB9 passes–and there’s nothing you or your city government can do about it.
If you want to protect your neighborhood from SB 9, write a letter to Governor Newsom TODAY–the governor is going to vote on this bill by Sunday, October 10. Let your voice be heard 👉
