SB-50 Teleconference

Telephone Conference
February 18, 2019
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Critics are calling SB-50 the CA Gentrification and Displacement Bill, a harsher, meaner version of Sen. Scott Wiener's SB-827, which proposed high-density housing near transit.

The Coalition to Preserve LA, colleagues of Livable CA, is hosting a tele-conference about SB-50 on Monday night at 7:00 pm. Dial in to find out what you need to know about this bill.

Call-in number: (605) 313-4400 Access Code: 870559 #

Coalition to Preserve LA describes the call like this: SB 50 is a Russian Nesting Egg, one egg within another, until you get to its rotten core. Every leading media outlet has misunderstood, and utterly failed, to un-peel this egg.

On the call, we'll peel back the layers.

SB 50 is the greatest attack on single-family home ownership, and the most extreme gentrification tool, ever floated by Sacramento. It rebrands quiet streets as either "transit rich" or "above-median/good schools/jobs-rich," in order to up-zone single-family areas to 75- and 85-foot apartments.

We'll explain why SB 50's claim to protect renters is trash talk. SB 50 will gentrify indiscriminately and push renters and the working-class from their homes.

We've confirmed that if SB 50 passes, cities can't reject these "by-right" luxury towers. Cities can only challenge the developer if the project threatens public safety.

Do you want to un-peel the Russian Nesting Egg with us?

Please dial into (605) 313-4400 Access Code: 870559 # on Monday, Feb. 18 at 7 p.m.!
