Is Sacramento City Hall really ending its single-family zoning to allow
4-to-6 units, a first in CA? Did they set off a domino effect in Berkeley,
and uneasy talk in South San Francisco?


Join Livable California's special guests addressing Sacramento's upzoning
controversy on Saturday April 3 at 10 a.m.:

Neighborhoods: Who will decide?

Co-hosted by Save Sacramento Neighborhoods

Register in advance for this meeting:


The city of Sacramento is drafting a General Plan, including the Housing
Element, to take effect in 2022. This plan proposes major changes affecting
neighborhoods in Sacramento including:

1) ending single family zoning and neighborhoods by allowing up to six units
on all single family lots, 

2) eliminating residential and commercial requirements that off-street
parking be provided for residents, customers, and clients; 

3) replacing gas heating, cooling, cooking etc. with electric in all
buildings, starting with new and then including new and existing, and 

4) reducing lanes and available parking on certain major streets.


Many Sacramentans are not aware of these changes or their implication for
existing neighborhoods.  This forum will summarize the City's proposals and
rationale and then offer a careful look at the implications of these
proposed changes. It will also include a review of legislative proposals to
eliminate single family zoning statewide. 


Parts of the proposal plan have become increasingly controversial as
residents become aware of the major changes to neighborhoods called for in
the plan. The city advocates say that ending single family zoning will
create affordable housing and right the wrongs of past racial
discrimination. Opponents say the city provides no evidence for these
claims, citing examples where upzoning has resulted in higher cost housing
and more racial segregation and raising other concerns.
