The first, Senate Bill 9, makes it possible to build 
more than one housing unit on land that was 
previously designated for only one unit. 
The second, Senate Bill 10, allows for denser 
development near public transit corridors, such 
as bus and train lines. 
Two new Bills, effective 
January 1, 2022, will impact 
single-family zoning in California. 
Zoning regulates how land can be used, or what can 
be built where. Can a business be built on a given plot? 
That area is zoned for commercial use. Can a home or 
condo complex be built there? That is residential zoning. 
In a downtown area, you might have mixed-use 
zoning — say, ground-floor retail businesses and 
residential units in the high-rise above. 
Single-family zoning refers to a residential area where 
only one housing unit can be built on a given parcel of 
land. Think of the Southern California suburban staple 
of a home with no shared walls — in other words, not 
a duplex, triplex or multiunit complex. If you live in a 
house with a driveway, garage, three bedrooms, two 
bathrooms, and front, back and side yards, it’s almost 
certainly a single-family home.

Subject: General Plan Amendment (GPA 21-03) for 2021-2029 
Housing Element Update, including Land Use Element, SafetyElement, Circulation Element updates, and Certification of 
the Subsequent Environmental Impact Report 
Applicant: City of Sierra Madre 
Project Location: Properties in the City of Sierra Madre, County of Los Angeles,
State of California 
SCH Number: 2021040369 
The City of Sierra Madre gives notice, pursuant to State of California law, that the 
City Council will conduct a public hearing for the General Plan Amendment regar-
ding the 2021-2029 Housing Element Update, including the Land Use, Safety, and 
Circulation Elements update, and certification of the Subsequent Environmental 
Impact Report. Every eight years the California Department of Housing and Com-
munity Development (HCD) re-evaluates the status of the housing market throug-
hout the State, and develops a new set of housing production goals for the State and 
its subregions. These allocated housing production targets are called the “Regional 
Housing Needs Assessment”, or RHNA. Each regional government, which in our 
case is the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG), then allocates 
these regional housing targets to all its member cities and counties.
