I’ve written a few blog posts over the past few months about SB 35 and its potential as a game-changer in more expeditiously getting development projects entitled and approved by local jurisdictions. Just this week, Cupertino approved a massive mixed-use development (with almost 3,000 units of new housing) after the City determined that it fell within the scope of SB 35.
Given the housing shortage and continuing issues with obtaining approvals for development in the Bay Area, I am confident that SB 35 (where potentially applicable) is going to become a desired tool for real estate developers to utilize in proposed development.
