Chamber Opposed AB 121
AB 121, legislation written by Assemblymember Marc Levine, will extend until 2028 the designation of Marin County as suburban rather than metropolitan for affordable housing zoning purposes. As a suburban-designated community, Marin will only be required to meet a housing density requirement of 20 units per acre rather than 30 units per acre.
The Chamber expressed its concern to Assemblymember Levine, noting that access to housing is one of the greatest issues facing employers and employees in Marin and that we need more, not less housing stock. Unfortunately, AB 121 passed the Assembly and Senate.
As one of our top priority areas, the San Rafael Chamber will continue to fight for the availability of affordable workforce housing in Marin County.
