The City of San Diego Planning Department is currently processing an update to the City’s Land Development Code (LDC) known as the Housing Legislation Code Update Package. This package of amendments will address California State housing law requirements, including a number of bills passed at the end of 2019. These include changes to State density bonus, homeless housing, and accessory dwelling unit laws, along with several other miscellaneous housing laws. The Housing Legislation Code Package will provide amendments to the LDC that are required to implement and comply with State law, as well as additional local amendments tailored to our specific local needs. It is anticipated that the public hearing process will begin in late summer.
