State Bill 827 would dramatically overhaul local zoning rules in CA cities and can affect Bel-Air

This Bill, introduced by Senator Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) would establish statewide standards for height, density, and required parking for new residential projects close to public transport.  Under those standards, projects within a half-mile of a major transit stop — or within one-quarter mile of a “high quality transit corridor” — could rise four to eight stories, and developers would no longer be required to build areas for parking.
