One in a series of events on the SPUR Regional Strategy.

In 2017, the California state legislature passed SB 35, providing a path for streamlining housing approvals in cities that have not met their housing targets. That bill, along with the threat of greater state legislation, is proving to be a catalytic lever in the local approvals process, especially at key Bay Area sites like Cupertino’s Vallco Town Center and the Brisbane Baylands. Hear about how this tool is being used from several stakeholders who are pushing housing development forward.
