Please Write Your State Senator to Oppose AB 414
AB 414 is a bill that would severely restrict overlay zoning and some types of mixed use zoning. We have been trying to work out amendments to the bill, but the author just took amendments in the last committee that now make the bill even worse.
Following is a link to a joint letter from the League of Cities and CCAPA opposing the bill. We are both asking our members to write letters to your own Senator, as well as Assembly Member Jones, opposing the bill, using this joint letter as a guildee. You can write the letter to your Senator and Assembly Member Dave Jones, and address it to State Capitol, Sacramento, CA 95814. You can mail, fax or e-mail the letter. Contact information for your Senator, can be found on the Senate website at www.sen.ca.gov.
In addition, please send a copy of your letter to me. The bill is currently on the Senate floor, so we are asking that letters be sent as soon as possible. The Legislature is set to adjourn for summer recess on Friday, but because the budget is still not approved, they may continue to work for the next several days. As a result, this bill may come up in the next week or two. If you have any questions, please contact me. Thank you.
