The City of San Diego Planning Department tracks amendments to California State housing laws and incorporates them into the City's Land Development Code, along with additional local amendments tailored to San Diego's specific housing needs. Due to the extent of the state legislation passed in recent years, these local LDC updates occur on an annual basis as part of a Housing Legislation Code Update Package. Staff is currently reviewing state legislation that will go into effect at the beginning of 2021, and will bring any required LDC amendments forward as part of the 2021 Housing Legislation Code Update Package. Once the need for amendments is identified, language will be drafted and vetted prior to initiating the public hearing process. Please check back after the new year for updates and scheduling.
