Description

The bill clarifies that the existing authority of cities and counties
(local governments) to plan for and regulate the use of land includes the
authority to regulate development or redevelopment in order to promote

the construction of new affordable housing units. The provisions of the
state's rent control statute do not apply to any land use regulation that
restricts rents on newly constructed or redeveloped housing units as long
as the regulation provides a choice of options to the property owner or
land developer and creates one or more alternatives to the construction of
new affordable housing units on the building site.
