Get ready for a lot more housing near the Expo Line and other California transit stations if new legislation passes
A new bill from state Sen. Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) would dramatically increase housing density near transit stops across California.
"Subject to some limitations, the measure would eliminate restrictions on the number of houses allowed to be built within a half-mile of train, light-rail, major bus routes and other transit stations, and block cities from imposing parking requirements. Sen. Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco), the bill’s author, said the state needs the housing to address affordability problems, maximize recent multi-billion-dollar transit investments and help the state meet its climate change goals."
