Housing Laws Guide

The legal landscape for local land-use policy and regulation is changing at an increasingly rapid pace. Amid the statewide housing crisis, California legislature has been issuing a record number of bills modifying the land-use parameters of local jurisdictions.

The Guide is intended to provide an understanding of the today’s legal framework for the planning of housing within the San Joaquin Valley.
