Livable California

Stop SB 50 - A Demolition Derby of Your Street

State Sen. Scott Wiener’s radical Senate Bill 50 bans single-family zoning in most of California to let developers buy out and bulldoze working-class, middle-class and historic homes, replacing them with 10-unit luxury apartments, luxury four-plexes, or apartment towers up to 8-stories high.

Wiener’s reckless experiment on an entire state was put on hold last spring amidst massive opposition from Californians, but SB 50 will come roaring back in Wiener's new campaign push in October or November of 2019. He wants approval by the California legislature and Gov. Newsom in early 2020.

Bob Hertzberg, the respected California Senate Majority Leader, opposes SB 50 and calls the plan full of “unintended consequences.” The cities of Los Angeles and San Francisco — Scott Wiener's own hometown — have taken opposition votes against it, as have scores of other cities, numerous social justice groups and the L.A. County Democratic Party.
